Originally constructed as a model farm in the 1880s, Runnings Park formed part of the De Waldon family estate. In the 1960s it was run as a farm and was then purchased by four families in 1981 and became a hotel/training centre. Runnings Park is now made up of individual homes, all of which are set in approximately 17.5 acres divided into individual lots each associated to a particular property.
