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 June 2015

Cannizaro Park’s spring blooms have been luxuriant this season – we hope you managed to enjoy the dazzling display of azaleas and rhododendrons in Lady Jane Wood. Both the Herb Garden and the Rose Garden have benefitted from the work of the Volunteers, and we are going ahead with the planting of the Iris beds with new plants. Read more here ...

We hope that many of you will attend the AGM at 7.30 on Sunday 20 September, when we can update you with our progress on the Italian Garden and the work of the Trustees of the Friends of Cannizaro Park.
