Up until 1850 the park was part of the Wheal Union tin mine. The old mine workings are now the site of the children's play area. In the 1930s modest camping facilities were established on what was then part of a farm attached to Harford House. At the beginning of the 1939-45 war the site was requisitioned for war use and a temporary army camp built. In the late 1940s the camp was cleared and returned to civil use.
