The Park was formerly known as Grosvenor Square and was conceived in 1905 when the Suburb of Hatfield was laid out. Development only commenced in the 1930s and it has since been planted with indigenous flora making it one of Pretoria's most attractive and established Open-Air Recreational Areas. It was declared a National Monument under old NMC legislation on 21 September 1979.
