SITE DETAILS

Dalmeny Park Islington

Summary

Dalmeny Park is a small secluded park behind Victorian housing, reserved 'for use by children and elderly' containing a playground, sandpit, grass and some trees. In the 1870s building was beginning to cover the rural area and by the 1890s much of the surrounding housing had been completed although land to the south of the park site remained unbuilt on until the early C20th. Previously for private use of residents of the surrounding housing the park is now public, owned by LB Islington.
