Middleton Park is a remnant of the manorial estate which existed after the Norman Conquest. Middleton is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086. At the northern end of park there is an earthwork from 1204 demarcating the boundary between Middleton and Beeston. Lords of the manor included the Grammarys, Creppings, Leghs and Brandlings. The Brandlings cleared land and built Middleton Lodge in about 1760, creating a country estate.〔Roe (2008), p. 1.〕 The Brandlings exploited the underlying coal and were responsible for building the Middleton Railway to transport the coal into Leeds.〔Roe (2008), p. 2.〕
Since 1919 the park has been in the ownership of Wade's Charity who lease it to Leeds City Council for a peppercorn rent. It has been one of Leeds many public parks since 1919.
