About your park 

The park sits opposite Turnpike Lane underground station on Green Lanes.  

History 

The name ‘Ducketts’ comes from Laurence Duket, a goldsmith who owned 160 acres of farmland. In the 13th-century, the farmland was originally part of Tottenham manor. 

Wildflower meadow 

The wildflower meadows on Ducketts Common contain more than 30 native wildflowers.  

The meadows were planted by volunteers from members of Christ Church London and local residents. It took 10,000 volunteer hours to complete. 

The meadows attract many insects such as bumble bees and butterflies. 

Green Flag Award Winner 

Ducketts Common won the Green Flag Award in 2014 and has kept it ever since.
