Brief Description

History

Heathbrook Park is one of a number of public parks or gardens in Battersea that were created from areas of derelict land following bomb damage in World War 2. The land was transferred to LB Wandsworth by the GLC in 1971 and was initially leased to the Metropolitan Police for vehicle storage. It was then laid out for recreation and opened in 1978.
