History

Today's park is a remnant of Aston Hall's 934-acre deer park and forms the key formal areas surrounding the house. Many of the features visible in the park today have been created as part of the park improvements by the civic society in the 1930s.

Due to the park's importance in the city and country, the gardens have been registered on the Historic Parks Register.
