Abbey Hill Park Bexley

Summary

Farmland up to the C20th, Abbey Hill Park became public open space between the 2 World Wars as the area was developed for housing. It is named from a property called Abbeyhill to the north shown on old maps surrounded by fields. The park is bounded to the south by South East Railways Dartford Loop line, from which it is screened by trees.The entrance from Canterbury Avenue is lined with shrubs and the park consists of an area of level grassland with a small circular area left unmown in summer. Since 2007 a former allotment site that is now Millennium woodland has been added to the park.
