Gita Reading, from Peverell, felt the object underfoot when she was out walking the dog in Central Park on Saturday afternoon.
Her husband Anthony identified it as a hand grenade.
Mr Reading described the device as a classic pineapple-style grenade. He said it appeared that recent heavy rain had washed away the earth to expose it.
