In 1961 the Ecclesiastical Commissioners gifted the Park to the people of the Borough, in recognition of the part they played in winning the 1939 - 1945 war at sea. The Park is named in memory of a former Archbishop of Canterbury, Bishop Temple (1881 - 1944).

In 2011 the Council and Sustrans spent £500,000 on improving the Park's footpaths and cycle ways.
