Brief Description

Features of Haven Green include mature perimeter trees, flower beds and a London Plane walk.

History

Haven Green has existed as common land since medieval times, with a small hamlet distinct from the larger settlement at Ealing Green. As a result of the 1866 Metropolitan Commons Act, Ealing Local Board purchased Haven Green and other common lands in 1878 to preserve them as public open space, at a time when suburban development was accelerating. Horse chestnuts were planted around the perimeter of the Green, with a walk lined with London plane trees along the south side.
