Canons Park is nestled between the borders of Edgware and Stanmore, it has a fascinating history dating back hundreds of years. The park boasts wide open spaces for walking, sports, picnicking; shady woodland walks with wonderful displays of spring bluebells and wild garlic (from late April to early May).
It has a family friendly area with an adventure playground, supersized climbing boulder, basketball hoop and outdoor exercise gym.
INVOLVING THE COMMUNITY IN CANONS PARK
If you’re looking for a way to get more involved in the park, why not take part in some of the regular events that take place throughout the year, like our annual Kids' Fun Fair Day , monthly bird watching walks, and volunteer Gardening Club work days in the stunning George V Memorial Garden - all of which we hope to resume some time in 2021.
PARK SAFETY We are regarded as a safe and friendly park but incidents do happen, as in any park in the country. If you do not report it, the police will never know and can do little to help. Harrow Council does not employ a dog warden but if you witness an incident regarding dogs that are out of control please try to take a photo, as long as that does not endanger you or your companions. This will help the police to identify the dogs and their owners so that they can take appropriate action to apprehend them.
PLEASE SEE IMPORTANT CONTACT NUMBERS AND ADDRESSES BELOW.
In case of an emergency or threatening anti-social behaviour in the park, please dial 999. There is now a heart defibrillator situated in Canons Park, a few yards from the Good Friends Cafe.
