A list of my favorite images of Broomfield Park, Palmers Green, London, England, UK - my local park, which I try to visit on a daily basis.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Broomfield_Park,_Palmers_Green

Broomfield Park is a 21 hectare public park in Palmers Green in the London Borough of Enfield.

It is a Site of Local Importance for Nature Conservation and is registered by English Heritage in the Register of Historic Parks and Gardens for its special historic interest.

The park was the garden of Broomfield House, which was built in the sixteenth century, although the oldest part of the present house is about 200 years old. Rocque's map of Middlesex in 1754 shows the park with its current boundaries, with ponds and an avenue.

Three of the four ponds date from the eighteenth century, but the northern most one was created early in the twentieth.

In 1902 Southgate Urban District Council purchased the house and grounds, and they were opened to the public in 1903.

The park has a café, tennis courts, bowling greens, an 18 hole adventure golf course, an outdoor gym, a children's playground, a conservatory, a garden of remembrance and a bandstand (where music events are occasionally held) .

The park has a variety of wildlife habitats, including the lakes, some small woods and magnificent oak trees. Aquatic plants include rigid hornwort, which is rare in London. There are also breeding birds such as Canada geese, mallard, tufted duck, coot and moorhen.
