A PARK FOR 21ST-CENTURY LIFE THAT STRETCHES BACK IN HISTORY

Welcome to our website.  We’re a group of volunteers who appreciate this green space and want to make sure it gets the love, care and attention it deserves.  READ MORE

During this time of social isolation the park is more valuable than ever. Great for dog walking, running, careful cycling or a gentle stroll. The park keepers from Glendale are doing their best to keep it looking good and tidy.

Although organised sports are not yet allowed during the coronavirus period there is lots of open space for individual exercise.
