Norwood Park is a park in South London

It commands a great view across Dulwich to The City and Central London 7 miles (11 km) away. On a clear day it may even be possible to see the Alexandra Palace in North London.

Other Features

This is quite a hilly park and therefore not used to its full potential by many but there are some hidden delights.[citation needed]

Playground

It contains an excellent new playground complex for all ages up to teenage - including a small mini football (soccer) pitch. There is a one o clock club for young children and carers and an impressive paddling pool (although currently not in use for much of the year) - however, there is an excellent one reasonably close by on Streatham Common.

Picnic areas

Floodlit astroturf football pitch / tennis courts

For a number of years the football pitch has been used by Flatland BMX'ers who refer to it as The Green Mile or TGM for short. TGM has its own Myspace page & Facebook page both run by a dedicated flatland community.

It enjoys spectacular views over London spanning from Hammersmith in the West to the Millennium Dome in the East

Trees

There are many trees in the park including Oak, Horse Chestnut and Sycamore species. It's especially good for the varied species of mushrooms growing around the wooded areas in the Autumn

Transport

Buses

Railways

The West End & Crystal Palace Railway passes the park between Gipsy Hill railway station & West Norwood railway station.
