Woodside Park was first laid out around the turn of the century and by 1914 boasted a bandstand and bowling green. Sadly the bandstand disappeared many years ago, but the park still plays host to an active bowling club and popular playground.
Two of Haringey’s historic buildings are located within the park. Woodside House, formally Wood Green Town Hall, is now used as council offices and the Grade II listed Mushroom House was formerly the lodge to the local manor house Chitts Hill (demolished in the 1890s).
The park plays host to the annual Friends Jazz Picnic and Folk Dance in the hollow behind the Mushroom House and is proving to be an increasingly popular summer fixture for local residents.
The over 5's playground will be removed by May 2019 and plans are in place to replace the equipment after discussions with park users and stakeholders. More information will be provided once plans progress.
