Which park was first used as a town commonage for livestock grazing before it was proclaimed as a reserve and later on as a National Park?

I would have said Richtersveld NP, but the wording of "town commonage" does suggest Bontebok.

Then the only other national park that I can think was close enough to a town to enable livestock grazing was CAMDEBOO; Graaff-Reinet is pretty much surrounded by this park.
