Welcome

Welcome to the website of the Friends of Cannizaro Park, a voluntary organisation which is dedicated to the improvement and support of the beautiful Cannizaro Park, a Grade II * listed park in the heart of Wimbledon Common and a stone’s throw from Wimbledon Village.

The Friends of Cannizaro Park were first established in 1997 and now have over 500 Members and Life Members. Together they help to ensure that local and not so local people, who enjoy and care about the Park, can make a real difference to the appearance diversity and upkeep of the gardens, woodlands and peaceful walks throughout this lovely and historic park.

Bridge fund-raising event for our Park

The response to our first ever' Friends of Cannizaro' Bridge Drive was amazing: we filled 2 beautiful rooms , kindly donated by Cannizaro House, with 30 tables of bridge players-so 120 people and there was quite a buzz!

The scones, fresh and warm from the oven , were delicious and there was a great selection of Raffle prizes, given generously by local businesses. We managed to raise £1500 which will go towards the fund for the improvement of the Italian Garden: a very exciting and much needed project which we're working on at the moment. We would like to thank everyone for their wonderful support and are now keen to make this an Annual event!
