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 Report

I am pleased to report that the work on the aviary is going well and we should have the birds back by the end of the month, weather allowing.

Our recent publicity about “the Friends” which we sent to locals and made available to other visitors is beginning to show results with a noticeable rise in membership applications and more donations towards the projects we are supporting.

Our fund for the Italian garden is growing and we may well be in a position to start work on the restoration soon.
