History

The site of Apsley Road playground was purchased by the Borough of Croydon in 1946 for the purpose of building a childrens playground and was formally the site of 15 Apsley Road.

The site was laid out as a childrens playground in 1951 and was a very popular area in a district that had few local open spaces for play. There had been an air raid shelter at the rear of 15 Apsley Road but this was demolished in 1973.
