Park Information

The Green Flag Award winning park contains a range of attractions including traditional meadows, a Japanese Garden, holly walk, remains of a Roman Tile Kiln, tree trail, Potters Bar Tennis Club, a lake, a pond with linking water channel, tree sculpture and a World War Two air raid shelter.

The park is crossed by two main paths, one of which is the Diamond Jubilee Cycleway, part of the borough’s greenway network.

Parkfield was acquired in 1934 having previously belonged to the Parker family, it was once part of a larger estate containing a house – which was later used as a nunnery, finally becoming a girls’ school before demolition in 1935-36.
