The Grove Park
The Grove Park forms a key part of the Carshalton Conservation Area occupying the north and east sides of Carshalton village's Lower Pond. It can be divided into two areas: the ornamental park near the ponds and the recreation ground to the east. The latter, created from fields in the 1920s, now houses a children's playground, crazy golf, bowling green, ball park, cafe, and toilets. The area of the site is 7.21 hectares.
The playground was highly commended in The Grove's Green Flag Award. The Minister for Regeneration summed up some of the award criteria as that which "makes a really good park: somewhere that feels welcoming, safe and uplifting and which involves the local community in the life of their park".
