The land to form Meersbrook Park was purchaed from the Lands Allotment Company Ltd for the sum of £7,500. The General Purposes and Parks Committe decided to open the 37 acres to the public on 17 September 1887, deferring the offical opening to a later date. The offical opening was deferred rather longer than expected and was not offically opened until September 1987 as the park celebrated it's centenary.
