History

Moormead and Bandy Recreation Ground was created on former wasteland. There were proposals that lands here should become a public recreation ground from 1885, although there was some controversy about this in ensuing years as the land was vested in different owners. In February 1893 editorial in the local paper advocated a recreation ground here as being financially, physically and morally desirable and by 1898 the pleasure ground at Bandy Close and Moor Mead is listed among Twickenham UDC's facilities.
