Beechwood House, a Grade II listed building, was built in 1877-78 as the private residence of George Fothergill, a tobacco manufacturer and former Mayor of Newport and the 30 acre park originally formed the private grounds.
In 1900, Newport Borough Council bought Beechwood House and the grounds were opened up as a public park. During the World War I, the house was used as a convalescent home.
Beechwood House was occupied by American forces during World War II and then had a number of uses including a hospital for the treatment of tuberculosis, an open air school and a model railway club.
