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 2016

There has been a great deal of activity in and around the Rose Garden over the last month:  the grass-seed that we sowed on the path is springing up; rose-bushes have appeared unexpectedly where we’ve cut back brambles, ivy and overhanging branches; last Sunday (17 April) we cleared the ivy from the Priest‘s House and prepared to do a makeover to the outside.

We are very grateful to several individuals who contributed most generously to the cost of buying climbing roses to plant in front of the Priest’s House. Our plan also covers the gradual replacement of the old rose bushes in the circular Rose Garden. So come and visit the Rose Garden next time you are in the Park and see the changes for yourself.
