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 Sept 2015

The volunteers have done a really good job over the year and the culmination has been the planting of 250 Irises in the newly restored Iris beds, located beyond the Sunken Garden; we had 16 volunteers and help from members, young and old.

At the planting a retired member of staff, Dennis Robbins, gave the Friends a cheque for £2,000 for further projects in the Park. Dennis worked in the Gardens in the time it was privately owned and moved to work for Wimbledon Council and Merton Council after that. It was a pleasure to hear his stories of the old days in the Park. We had a very good AGM recently which created a lively discussion during and after the formalities.
