The park was originally part of the manor of Addington and the area was used by Henry VIII for hunting purposes. The original manor house was replaced in 1768 by Addington Palace and the grounds were laid out by Capability Brown in 1781.
Most of the 24.50 acres which make up the public park were purchased from the owners of the 500 acres (200 ha) Addington Palace Estate by Croydon Council in 1930. Tennis courts were purchased after World War II.
