Brief Description

History

Bromley Recreation Ground was laid out on part of the former grounds of a 16th-century house named Tudor House, which was acquired in 1898 by the LCC, in order to create a new public park for this densely populated neighbourhood. The house was demolished, being in a poor state of repair, and the ground was laid out as a garden, with a bandstand, toilets and also a gymnasium for children. It was opened in April 1900.
