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.


Chairman's Update August 2017

The months of July and August have seen very many visitors to the Park, and we are delighted to announce that all six of the picnic benches and tables in the Italian Garden are fully restored and now being used.

This is thanks to a most generous contribution of one of our Volunteers, who master-minded the whole operation - you can see him in the photo above, advising his team of fellow-volunteers.

Have a look at the Volunteers page to find out more about what the team has done recently.
