About

Wandle Park is a historic park, 8.5 hectares (21 acres) in size, which is situated to the west of Croydon town centre. Created on the site of two meadows (known as Frogs Mead and Stubbs Mead), it is owned by the Borough of Croydon and was opened by the Mayor of Croydon in May 1890.

The River Wandle runs through it. Hidden below ground in a culvert for more than 40 years (from 1967), the river was recently restored to view as part of a major regeneration project carried out between 2010-13: funders included the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Mayor of London’s Help a London Park programme.
