Brief Description

This remains a rural landscape surrounded by suburban Mill Hill, with views from Featherstone Hill in the west and Mill Hill Ridge to the north-east. The hilly site consists of 12 fields divided by hedgerows, areas of woodland, a network of footpaths and a horse ride. In the early 1990s planting of exotic tree species began in various areas to form a new arboretum.

History

Arrandene Open Space was purchased by Hendon Council in 1929 in order to preserve it for public recreation at a time when the area was rapidly developing.
