Crease Park Bromley
Summary: Crease Park was probably once part of Eden Park estate, formerly called Eden Farm. The park was opened in July 1936 by Alderman James Crease JP, after who it was named in honour of his ‘unremitting endeavours towards the acquisition of open spaces in Beckenham’. He had served as a member of the local authority since 1898.

Fuller information:

The park slopes to the south and the mown grass is decorated with a number of specimen trees, including holm oak, mature cedar of Lebanon, and a predominance of hornbeams, oak, birch and horse chestnut. A grassed children's play area, enclosed within wooden palings, is situated to the south-east. There are views to the south from the high point of the site. A tarmac path from the top divides into two serpentine paths leading down to Wellhouse Road, which is named after an old well house that stood nearby; the well and ruins of Eden Park existed until Beckenham Heights were developed in the 1920s. On Village Way are cast iron railings and brick gate piers.
