In the days before the playing fields, it was originally owned by the Scofield family. The old tram or trolley bus was used to store hay when they kept livestock on the field. It was later compulsory purchased by Wivenhoe Urban District Council in the 1930s to be used as a recreational space in memory of King George V.
