The park is located on the Rode Kruislaan in Woensel, in the district De Tempel. The park was crated in 1972 and is 22 hectares in size. The construction of this park started in 1972. Designed in the years 1971-'72 by the chief designer of the municipality, Mr P. Ramp. The aim was to create a piece of nature in the city that offered a certain intimacy and formed a contract with the rectilinear arrangement of the buildings that surround the park.
Since May 2013, there is an ANWB Groenplein in the Henridunantpark. The ANWB Groenplein Eindhoven is an initiative of the ANWB in collaboration with the municipality of Eindhoven and the immediate residents. It is a place where people can meet and enjoy the greenery in their neighbourhood.
