Entrance to Greenhill Park
Entrance to Greenhill Park
Greenhill Gardens is a small public park in High Barnet in the London Borough of Barnet. Its main feature is an ornamental lake which attracts many birds, and it also has a grassed area with scattered mature trees. It is a Local Nature Reserve.

The park is the small surviving part of large country estate known as Pricklers, named after a medieval family called Prittle. The estate became Greenhill Gardens in the 16th century, and it was split up when Thomas Henry Wyatt built Willenhall in the southern part. Most of the land was developed for housing in the twentieth century. In July 1926 East Barnet Council purchased the land which is now a public park for 20,000. In 1965 East Barnet became part of the London Borough of Barnet, which now owns and manages the park.
