Betts Park 7669

London, England, Greater London

Brief Description

The park slopes to the south and is almost entirely surrounded by residential housing, some of it high-rise. Trees include mature oaks, pollard willow, holm oak, London plane and a mulberry, and there are remains of a shrubbery with holm oak, laurel and yew. Horse chestnut trees line a tarmac walk from Anerley Road south-west across the park. The brick base of a drinking fountain survives to the north and from this point there are views across the surprisingly wooded landscape of Croydon.

History

Betts Park was opened in 1935 with horticultural features and recreation facilities provided with funding from King George's Fields Foundation.
