The Eastwood Croquet Club was inaugurated in 1935 and began life at the present site at the beginning of 1936, following the construction of the Croquet members’ pavilion and courts by Ryde Council.

A number of local croquet enthusiasts had for some years been petitioning state and local governments for a croquet centre in the locality and were finally successful with the dedication of a site and an allocation of funds in the early 1930’s to construct two croquet courts and a clubhouse on the north-east corner of Eastwood Park adjacent to Eastwood Town Centre..

Eastwood Park is part of what was long known as “Love’s Farm” named from a very early (1795) land grant. After a varied history, a Crown land public park was proclaimed in 1920 and Ryde Council appointed as trustee. Eastwood Park was finally vested in the Council in 1978. The lower part of Eastwood Park including the courts of Eastwood Croquet Club, formed a small lake in the early 1900's, filled in 1929 in a project partly to alleviate unemployment, but also because the lake had become polluted with run-off from the growing town centre and increased roads and housing in the area.

The croquet pavilion and two courts were constructed during 1935, officially opened in December of that year withtwo Croquet Lawns and a sandstone Pavilion, and the previously established Eastwood Croquet Club took up occupation in January 1936.

Early Crown Lands Department aerial survey photographs taken in 1943 show the croquet courts and members' pavilion, together with five small shelters used by the players, and the rose garden to the south of the courts. All of these features remain today essentially as then, except for one shelter demolished due to termite infestation some years ago, and evolutionary changes in the rose garden.
