Gladstone Park, London

4.4
#93 of 183 in Parks in London
Gladstone Park is situated in the Dollis Hill area of north-west London. It is about 35 hectares (86 acres) in area
Dollis Hill House was an early 19th-century farmhouse, located within the northern boundary of the park.
Dollis Hill tube station on the London Underground Jubilee line is about a 10-minute walk away from the park, to the south-west. Cricklewood Thameslink station is to the east.
Bus services also run through the area.
The park is situated on both sides of the Dudding Hill Line. This railway is currently only used by freight trains, but it has been subject to various railway schemes over the years, including a recent proposal for a radial North and West London Light railway (NWLLR), which might result in a light-rail stop being built at one or both ends of the park. There is a footbridge over the railway at the western end of the park, and a private road bridge (only used by Brent Parks Service) at the eastern end.
It was chiefly the loss of sports grounds at Neasden by the arrival of the Great Central Railway towards the end of the 19th century that motivated local public backing for a new park at Dollis Hill. Hence, there was very strong support at Neasden for the idea that the District Council should buy from the Finch family the part of their estate that lay south of Dollis Hill Lane, for £50,000. However, considerable opposition to the proposal, mainly on cost grounds, arose from other parts of Willesden, largely driven by the editor of the Willesden Chronicle from his office in South Kilburn.

  • Beautiful park with trad features like play area, duck pond, rose garden etc. VERY fine cafe (only open Wed-Sat, book for lunch). Goods rail line runs through middle for trainspotter delight. In suburbs, yet feels v far from London.
  • Beautiful park. Clean and spaciousness. I love the old trees. There's also an outdoor gym that is very popular to locals.
