Beautiful rockery, plenty of open space and wildlife. The ponds are excellent and a walk down the streams will round off a day out

Fantastic little gem. Take a camera, some nuts & some duck feed (not bread). You can have a great time there. Small playground for kids towards the back but the main attraction is the wildlife.

I love this park and have gone there regularly for over thirty years - at least once or twice a month. The waterfall is Carshalton's own Schaffhausen falls and there is an old waterwheel for what was once a snuff mill.

This park leads off from Carshalton Ponds. The path follows the stream from the ponds and provides a nice stroll with plenty of wildlife to see both on the water and among the trees. The path exits the park near a pub, and if you...More

The car park opposite the Co-op in the High Street is next to the park if you park at the back of the car park, but it is a pay and display. I used to park in Mill Lane which was free and go in the entrance by the river. I... More
the grove was very much a part of my childhood I need to research its wartime history, I remember it as a clinic for mothers and babies but think that might have been after the war.

I am from NS myself but there is a History Museum right by the park cannot remember what it is called at this moment but they have a lot of archives and should be able to help you with the research.
