Chandos Recreation Ground Harrow
Summary: Named after the Duke of Chandos of Canons, Chandos Recreation Ground was laid out pre-war on a hilly site and is criss-crossed by paths, some of which are lined with avenues of trees. The original gates remain and at the entrances are shrubbery beds and some formal beds. A brick pavilion with mock-Tudor triangular pediment is situated at the top plateau of the recreation ground, in front of which is a tarmaced terrace leading to grass and a strip of flower beds that overlooks the landscape, with a short central flight of steps set into low brick wall.
