A typical smattering of trees for this part of London. Above average lawn to stretch out comfortably and not feel mud or soil. A smallish park that has space but is in sections due to tennis courts at the centre cutting it into two halves (but this lends the back half a more secluded feel. The front half seemed nice enough but the day we were there a proper game of cricket was being played (complete with score board, and wives watching with tea and cucumber sandwiches).
Add-Ons (“Beyond The Greenery”)
It’s cricket friendly and has tennis courts. One toilet area that’s pretty clean. Dogs can go off-lead. Not much else.
A strange little park. The only reason we went there was because we got mixed up and were looking for a different park. The cricket game was quaint. The rest of it was almost eerily quiet. I got the feeling that it was definitely a park only frequented by a few locals.
Tips, Tricks & Traps
The only trick to this park is finding it. It’s quite a hike to it from a train station and is a bit hidden off a small back road.
