In June 1910 the Pukekura Park Board recieved a letter from Messrs. L. Little, H. J. M. Mills, T. C. Schnackenberg, S. L. Mark, F. Tribe, and K. Webster, stating that “a movement was on foot to form a tennis club in Vogeltownand the promoters are very desirous of utilising a portion of the Park fronting the Carrington Road, and adjoining the Vogeltown entrance—lying between the entrance and the caretaker’s cottage".

The grounds were officially opened at 2:30pm on Tuesday 3 January 1911 after many months of work by club members and the wider community. 

It is unclear exactly when the surviving concrete retaining wall and steps were constructed.
