History

Knights Hill is named after the Knight family who owned land in this area in the 16th century. Formerly called Knights Hill Recreation Ground, Tivoli Park is an historically interesting site for its connections with the Maudslay engineering family who lived nearby and it was once part of the grounds of the Maudslays' house. It was purchased with involvement of the MPGA in 1914, and has been saved from being sold off a number of times.
