STOP PRESS! After the first round of repairs, the George V Memorial Garden is finally open to visitors again and looking more beautiful than it has for many years, thanks to the hard work of the Friends' Gardening Club and very welcome input from groups of corporate volunteers who have been helping us out during the spring and summer months. Further work to repair recent vandalism will take place in August and September. In the meantime, if you spot any anti-social or destructive behaviour in the garden or elsewhere in the park, please call 999 or, if after the event, 101.
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.

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.
