The park was originally a deer park laid out by Henry de Hastings in the 13th century. It was approximately 5 times larger than the current park. It was later used as a large gentleman's farm of more than 400 acres (1.6 km2) which was owned by the church. In the 1960s, it was bought by Coventry City Council when it was preserved as a public park.
