Queenscroft Recreation Ground (also known as Queenscroft Park)8010

London, England, Greater London

Brief Description

Some of the mature trees in the park pre-date the municipal layout, which included a popular model boating lake and paddling pool.

History

Queenscroft Recreation Ground was provided by Woolwich Borough Council after World War 2 for the growing population of the Eltham area, following building of its new housing estates such as the Middle Park Estate south of the park. The name is taken from an early-18th century house of that name in Eltham. The land had been one of three deer parks within the estate of Eltham Palace, which was later farmed and then purchased for housing development in the 1930s.
