You are correct. I misread the information I found. Here it is below.
In 1897, Col. R.H. Carr Ellison allowed the residents of Hebburn the use of the surrounding lands and in 1920, Col. Ralph Henry Carr Ellison presented 25 acres to the town as a park. The grounds of Hebburn Hall were further developed in the early 20th century and by about 1916, the gardens had been named ‘Hebburn Park’ and substantial development had been undertaken within the grounds that included a bandstand, tennis court, bowling greens, aviary, greenhouses and the Boer War Memorial
