If you go down to the park today…come and take a look at whats been happening in one of Pinner’s largest and largely undiscovered parks.
Pinner Village Gardens offers many opportunities for fun and recreation, jogging and cycling.
It has a great range of specimen trees, fruit trees, shrubs and flower beds, that were all laid out as gardens to enjoy way back in the 1930’s as an original pleasure garden.
In the Spring, there is a great show of blossom followed by the multi coloured azaleas coming into bloom and with their own special perfume.
The thriving wildlife pond holds surprises for children looking for newts and dragonflies, plus herons and woodpeckers visit often.
The park has 4 entrances at Rayners lane, Whittington way, Hereford gardens and Compton Rise and some incredibly old trees – even a 350 year old oak plus a rose circle and native bluebell wood.
During this difficult lock down period, some park users have started their own initiative and suddenly lovely little handmade painted wooden signs began popping up amongst the planting all around the park, with supportive messages for all and thanking the NHS.
Next came beautiful hand painted character stones – with fabulous detail and some with cute little animal faces. A big thank you to all for this a wonderful act of kindness that lots of people have stopped to admire and comment on these and we now have a pop up art grove.
Once restrictions are lifted, the Friends community group who help Harrow Council look after the park would love to hear from you and have more help.
