Penge Recreation Ground 7981

London, Greater London, England

Brief Description

At the park entrance on the High Street is a War Memorial, with the former lodge, now derelict, just inside the gates. Within the park is a tall granite drinking fountain presented by Mrs Blundell Maple in 1889. An avenue of trees, probably at least 100 years old, runs south-west along the western part of the site but much of the park is now taken up with a grassed children’s play area, and a tarmac sports area.

History

Penge Recreation Ground was opened to the public in 1888.
