About your park

Down Lane Recreation Ground

Down Lane Park sits between Park View Road and Ashley Road, near to Tottenham Hale station.

Local residents and sports groups regularly use the park. It's also an attractive cut through for commuters using Tottenham Hale Station.


The land where the park now sits was known as Lammas land. The council purchased it in 1900.

On 11 May 1907, the wife of the then Chairman of the Council, Mrs Garland, officially opened the park. It was first called Down Fields, and later changed to Down Lane.

Green Flag Award

Down Lane Park first won a green flag Award in 2014, has retained it ever since.
