Located in Tottenham, Bruce Castle Park covers eight hectares of parkland and is rich in history dating back to the early 11th century.
The park was created from the remains of the ancient Bruce Castle family estate, purchased by the Council in 1892. Bruce Castle Museum, a Grade 1 listed 16th century manor house, now houses the borough’s local history collections and archives and has been open since 1927.
Each year nearly 900,000 people visit the park to use its many facilities, including the tennis and basketball courts, play bowls or to enjoy festivals and events. In the summer, children flock to the paddling pool and then the magnificent ancient oak tree, that dominates the northern side of the park, which provides welcome shade.

The Parks Service supports a variety of activities in the park including the Bruce Castle Carnival, a multi-cultural festival held in June.
