Brief Description

The park is a rectangular open space of mown grass with a perimeter tarmac path and is almost completely surrounded by houses, which are largely screened from the site by shrubs and hedges. A children’s playground is situated to the south-east and a sports field to the north. There are a few semi-mature chestnuts, oaks and ornamental pines.

History

Blake Recreation Ground opened to the public in August 1932. It was probably once part of Monks Orchard estate now divided from High Broom Wood by Oak Lodge Primary School.
