Visiting the park
Situated very close to Canons Park underground station on the Jubilee Line, the park is well served by public transport.
Enter from Whitchurch Lane (buses 79, 186 and 340 drop you right by the entrance), or walk from the underground station along Donnefield Avenue to the park entrance at the end. Alternatively, there are entrances at the top end of Canons Drive, and on Howberry Road.
Please note that some roads near the park have restricted parking hours. There is a station car park in Donnefield Avenue and a number of spaces at the top of Canons Drive, including two for disabled drivers.
The park has a disabled toilet and is FULLY ACCESSIBLE, now that the country-style pathway through the Spinney woodland has finally been completed, enabling wheelchair users,walkers, joggers, and families with pushchairs to explore this wonderful quarter-mile long walk through woods that date back hundreds of years.
Dogs are welcome in all areas but the council asks that dog owners put their pets on a lead in the Memorial Garden, so that those who come there for a little peace and quiet - or are afraid of dogs - can enjoy the surroundings.
Please also remember that the pond at the centre of the garden is home to a variety of wildlife, including frogs and newts, so allowing your dog to swim in the pond is both anti-social and harmful to these little creatures! The committee has recently spent a lot of time and money restoring the pond and it is looking really good at the moment, with water lillies and other aquatic plant flourishing in time for the summer. .
Good Friends Cafe
The Good Friends Cafe
is open from the Spring all the way to the end of Summer (weather permitting).
Come and visit the cafe for a restoring cup of coffee or a cooling ice lolly!
Our popular café has become the social hub of the park, where friends (and their dogs!) can meet up for snacks, teatime goodies and ice creams during the spring and summer months. They even hire out table tennis bats for use on the tables in the playground.
