History

Inwood Park opened as Hounslow Recreation Ground in 1902, the first recreation ground in the area. A meeting of Heston & Isleworth UDC in March 1897 had agreed to provide a recreation ground in celebration of the Queen's Jubilee and the site of the new park was one of two suggested. Problems with purchasing the land delayed the park, and although it opened in 1902 it was only completed in 1905. There were ornamental beds and formal planting in the front half of the park and facilities for sports behind.
