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.

Chairman's Update April 2015

I am delighted to announce that the Friends of Cannizaro Park is now a Registered Charity No 1160982. Read more here ...

Our work of raising funds for the restoration of the Italian Garden is on-going and we will now be re-doubling our efforts over this summer to ensure that we reach our estimated cost of £50,000. To date, the fund is £20,000. Please let me know if you, or someone you know, would be interested in contributing to this exciting project which will re-create an attractive focus in the park.

As you walk around the park, don’t miss the magnificent magnolia trees that are in full flower this month.
