History

West Harrow Recreation Ground dates from between the two world wars but is distinguished by its trees that predate the park layout. The area was predominantly rural before the arrival of the railway brought housing development. The Metropolitan Railway extended the line to Uxbridge in 1904 and West Harrow Station opened in November 1913, within two years recording some 43,000 passengers a month. As housing grew up the park was provided for the new residential population.
