The park was created from land donated by Mr Frederick Betts, a local property owner. The park originally included a public library too. It was opened in December 1928 and was named after Frederick's mother.
Its facilities now include a football pitch, ball court, goal posts, skateboard area, and a children's play area. 
London Borough of Bromley offers a scheme for locals to become a part of a friend group for the many parks. These groups are made up of volunteers who want to help discuss how the local parks are maintained, used and developed. Betts Park is part of this scheme.
