Bishops Park is a park in Fulham, West London. The park was opened by the London County Council in 1893, on land given by the Ecclesiastical Commissioners. It is listed Grade II on the register of parks and gardens of special historic interest maintained by English Heritage.

The park runs north of the River Thames from All Saints church along a broad tree-lined avenue and an embankment path along the river, and ends at Bishop's Park Road. It contains tennis courts and bowling greens, with another small park area fronting Fulham Palace Road. It is adjacent to Fulham Palace and Fulham Football club.

A memorial to members of the International Brigade who volunteered to fight in the Spanish Civil War has been located within the park since 1997. The park has a poolside beach and facilities for basketball, tennis, table tennis, lawn bowling and skating, and hosts a farmers' market.

  • This is a fantastic park with something for everyone. Take a walk along the river, or put on your running shoes and do a circuit or two with your dog. Admire the roses planted near to all saints church or stroll into Fulham Palace for trained gardens, historical splendor and a quiet cut of tea. In the heart of the park is an open area occasionally hosting markets or events for the family to enjoy. There are two fenced playgrounds with fantastic equipment appropriate for kids from 0-15 and skate ramps and table tennis for older kids. In the summer you can pretend to be abroad as you sit by the 'beach' and watch your children play on the sand or run through the fountains to cool off - don't forget their swimmers! There is a pretty lake to walk around and you can feed the ducks or sit on the grass or nearby bench and enjoy a picnic. There is also a playing field to practice with balls etc. used to host events like the annual fireworks. There are toilets which are usually in good condition and a cafe by the playgrounds offering very reasonably priced food, tea coffee cakes...and ice-cream!
  • Really good for young children. Really clean. Great place to spend a sunny day
