Gladstone Park

Gladstone Park evolved from the Dollis Hill Estate and became a public park at the turn of the 20th Century.

Initially the park was to be called Dollis Hill Park, but its associations with Sir William Gladstone were so strong that it was decided to name the park after the former Liberal Prime Minister.

The Park was opened in May 1901 and many of its features date from that time, including the fine tree lined avenues.

Recreational with some sporting facilities to the south of the Park. The Gladstone Park Consultative Committee (GPCC) is actively involved in the Park's management. In 2003/04, Gladstone Park underwent a Heritage Lottery refurbishment programme and as a result many of the Park's features and facilities have been restored.

Access is off Dollis Hill Lane into surfaced car park for approx. 40 cars. Pedestrian access is good from all sides of the park.

This park has held the Green Flag Award. This award scheme is the benchmark national standard for parks and green spaces in the UK.

There is a dog control order for the walled garden area.
