The History of Grosvenor & Hilbert Park
The Grosvenor Recreation Ground was Tunbridge Wells’ first public park. It was opened in 1889 on the site of the former Calverley Water Works, engineered by William Hilbert.

In 1931 William Hilbert’s grandson, Cllr E.J. Strange, bought the “Charity Farm” lands to the north east, and presented them to the council. He requested they be named Hilbert Recreation Grounds after his mother, Lydia. This land also includes the Hilbert Recreation Ground Allotments.

The original Farmhouse, now called “Packs in the Woods” is privately owned.
