SITE DETAILS

Centenary Park Harrow

Summary

Centenary Park is on sloping land, and was added to the area's public open space in 1934 when Middlesex County Council acquired the land. The park has some formal layout with a tree set within a circular lawn on the axis with the main entrance and another circular bed planted with heather and conifers. A perimeter path with a line of London plane trees runs along Culver Grove and a red brick lodge is located at one end of Culver Avenue. Part of the park is laid out as a putting green, enclosed by a chain link fence.
