Elmwood Park 7777

London, England, Greater London

Brief Description

Elmwood Park has 'possibly the finest views in the whole of Brent'. The park has a number of old oak trees including one at the summit that may date from a former hedgerow. A woodland strip on the southern side of the park is dominated by ash and elm.

History

The site was once the grounds of a house called Elmwood, which was bombed and part was given to the local Council for open space. Elms Lane is an old track of at least medieval date or even earlier, and 18th- and 19th-century cottages remain near the junction of Elms Lane and Sudbury Court Road.
