Budding Olympians will love the wide range of sporting and recreational facilities at this beautifully kept local park. With two expansive playing fields for football or cricket, floodlit tennis courts, a bowling green and basketball courts, they will be spoilt for choice! Tennis courts and lessons for kids and adults can be booked at http://www.pavilionsportsandcafe.co.uk.
Those of a more sedentary nature are also catered for with a cafe serving up delicious homebaked cakes, coffees and Mediterranean style food. On sunny days, the cafe terrace is a great vantage point for observing the action on the playing fields, keeping an eye on errant children or enjoying the view over to Alexandra Palace.
Children will love the brightly coloured, well maintained playground and adventure play area as well as the park’s wooded slopes which are small enough to be safe but wild enough to be exciting to mini explorers.
If your trip to the park ignites your passion for nature, you can stock up on gardening essentials, plants and accessories at Sunshine Garden Centre next door.
The park hosts a varied calendar of cultural and sports events including the Jazz Fest in September, summer tennis clubs, football lessons, the AP and Beyond art and music trail and Australian rules football. The Pavilion Cafe can also be booked for parties and events.
