Grovelands Park N14 - Enfield

Late C18 landscape park and lake by Humphry Repton, extended in the mid-C19 and laid out as a public park in the early C20 by Thomas Mawson. The mansion and immediate grounds are now a private hospital. The divided ownership of the park between the Local Authority, Thames Water and the hospital has led to differential management regimes. The sports area is in very bad condition with intrusive fencing and redundant structures. A Conservation Management Plan has been prepared and discussions are needed in order to secure its implementation.
