SITE DETAILS

Basing Hill Park Barnet

Summary

Basing Hill Park is a small park on land that was open fields until the 1920s, but was then increasingly developed for housing. The recreation ground was laid out by 1936 to serve the growing population. The park is largely grassed with perimeter shrubs and trees, including a number of evergreen trees and conifers. Near the entrance on Hendon Way are tennis courts and 2 small built structures, adjacent to which is a small area of rose beds and concrete tubs. A tarmac path runs around the perimeter of the park.
