The Park was created by a prominent local family in the Victorian era, along with the building of Hare Hill House. It sits snugly in the very heart of the Littleborough community.

The family beneficiaries sold the house and gardens to Littleborough Urban District Council in 1900. Hare Hill Park is now owned and managed by Rochdale Borough Council.
