Downhills Park

Downhills Park Road, N17

Green Flag Award Winner since 2006

Downhills park flower beds

The irregular shaped 12 hectares of Green Flag award winning Downhills Park is split into two very distinctive sections. To the west lies the recreation ground, used every weekend during the season for both organised sport and for more informal kickabouts by children and adults of all ages, throughout the year.

The formal gardens lie to the east of the Park. Today the elegance and sophistication of the early nineteenth century design still remains. The ornamental Italian Gardens located at the heart of the Park, made up of rose beds and annual bedding, are a favourite with park users. The nearby tennis courts, hard ball area and bowling green are set amongst beautiful trees and landscaped gardens. Find out more about the facilities in Downhills Park.

The Downhills Park Café (external link) lies to the east of the park near the tennis courts. This is a great place to stop for a coffee and a nibble. The Café is a social enterprise that supports adults with learning disabilities into employment.

Downhills Park won the prestigious Green Flag award in 2006 and every year since.

Green Flag Judges Comments:

'The park has benefited from careful opening up of heavily shrubbed areas. The rose garden maintenance is particularly impressive with high standards. Play areas are clean and welcoming and well signed. There is an active Friend’s group and good communications with outside groups.'
