Down Lane Park
Park View Road, N17
Green Flag Award Winner since 2014
Down Lane Park is situated between two roads - Park View Road and Ashley Road - near to Tottenham Hale. It is used regularly by local residents and sports groups, and is an attractive cut through for commuters using Tottenham Hale Station.
The land where the Park now sits was purchased by the Council in 1900, and was formally known as Lammas land. It was opened on 11 May 1907 by the wife of the then Chairman of the Council, Mrs Garland, and was initially called Down Fields, later having its name changed to Down Lane.
The Park now consists of a large green sports field which accommodates two adult sized football pitches, available for booking during the football season. The outdoor gym opened in 2012 was upgraded in 2014 to provide an easy access hard surface and is extremely popular with local residents.
To the south of the park lies the playground, popular with families, a mini BMX track, a basketball court, the Tottenham Hale Bowling Club and 3 floodlit tennis courts.
Parking is available in the car park situated off Park View Road.
Following extensive local consultation a master plan for the park was completed in October 2011.
This has led to the creation of an outdoor gym (with surface upgrade in 2014), path improvements, a new mini natural play area, new park seating, new and refurbished perimeter park fencing and the provision of 3 new all weather tarmacadam floodlit tennis courts.
On our 'to do' list once funding is sourced, is an all weather floodlit games area, a replacement basketball area, a south-facing cafe overlooking a small lake and indoor community space with public toilets.
