Park Information

It is one of only two dedicated Nature Reserves on the borough of Hertsmere and is registered as a Local Nature Reserve with Natural England.

Formally a dis-used allotment site, in 1994 the local community lobbied for this valuable area of green belt to be turned over to a public open space and Fishers Field was created.

From inception, the Friends of Fishers Field, all local residents, have worked in partnership with Hertsmere Borough Council and Countryside Management Service to manage, maintain, develop and promote the Reserve.

In 2017, a new public open space opened adjacent with a childrens play area, fitness equipment, seating area, King George V culvert and wildflower meadows.
