  • Visitor Information

Scattered with sweeping willow trees, this grassy park still bears the scars today of a contentious history. In his bid to dissolute England’s monasteries, Henry VIII confiscated the land, then owned by the Roman Catholic Church. The land was snatched from the Nuns of Clerkenwell and became Arnos Grove Estate.

The actual park was later created in 1928 out of 44 acres of wood and lush meadow. A brick built, eye-catching viaduct runs through the park carrying the Piccadilly line.

It is a fresh, open-space for kids to run about it in. They can clamber on the playground or play hide and seek among the trees. There are also some great tennis courts and a small putting green for keen golfers.
