.Chadderton Hall Park was originally the grounds of Chadderton Hall. Chadderton Hall was first built in the 13th century by Geoffrey de Chadderton, In 1629 a new hall was built at the site of the current park and was present there until the 20th century when it was demolished in 1939. A boating lake and a menagerie, including a kangaroo and a lion, were established as part of a "Pleasure Garden" in the park. These features have long since been demolished but evidence of the boating lake can be seen by the hollowed out area where the playing fields now stand.
