Bourne Park Croydon
Summary: Bourne Park lies in a narrow strip of land between Godstone Road and the Purley-Caterham railway line. It was acquired by the Coulsdon and Purley UDC in 1921 and was laid out as a public park with a playground and paddling pool and, to the north-west, allotments. With the gradual decline in use of allotments they were reduced in size and in 1987 the park was extended.
