The noticeboard at the entrance to Knyveton Gardens (pronounced "Nivverton") is very informative about their history.

They were leased from the trustees of the late W.I. Trehearne for an annual rent of 100, on 21 July 1885, for a 99-year term. The original bowling green had been established by 1912 and it was upgraded to a full size green after the First World War. The freehold was sold to the Council for 1,000 on 15 June 1922. The new pavilion was erected on further land abutting Southcote Road purchased on 7 March 1929. The pavilion was used by ARP Wardens in the Second World War. The current pavilion dates from the 1990s and replaced the one mentioned above; at this time the sensory garden was added and in 1999 the petanque area was installed.
