EMERGENCY CLOSURE OF THE GEORGE V MEMORIAL GARDEN, DECEMBER 2019
Harrow Council officers have had to close the Memorial Garden until further notice due to damage to the roof of the garden shelter after recent storms, which they feel presents a danger to the public. Safety barriers will be erected on Monday 11 February, after which the garden will again be open to the public whilst the council organises the necessary works.
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.
Only good friends meet @ The Good Friends Café, where there is a wonderful selection of lunchtime snacks, teatime treats, lollies and wonderful home made ice creams, cakes and biscuits on offer, plus hot and cold drinks including super 'bean to cup' coffee. Table Tennis bats can be hired from the Cafe for use on the tables in the playground. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE CAFE IS NOW CLOSED FOR THE WINTER BUT, WEATHER PERMITTING, WILL OPEN AGAIN AT THE BEGINNING OF APRIL 2019.
