Butler's Green represents the last remnant of Sudbury Common, which until the early-18th century covered around 234 acres in this area.
Butler's Green land had been owned by Sir William Perkin (1838-1907), a Methodist and scientist. The site was purchased in 1920 from Perkin's Trustees and was opened as Sudbury Recreation Ground. It was renamed after Edwin Butler who had a grocer's shop at 791 Harrow Road, and who was much involved in local affairs, an advocate of acquiring open land for public recreational use.
