Sunny Hill Park
Sunny Hill Park
Sunny Hill Park was created in the 1920s when Hendon Council purchased Sunnyhill Fields in 1921, which belonged to Church Farmhouse, whose garden adjoins the south end of the park. It also includes an area that was once part of the churchyard of Hendon parish church of St Mary. The park opened in 1922. It was enlarged in 1929 when further land was added. Church Farm House was a museum but has now sadly closed - see LinkExternal link

The park became a popular viewing point during the 1920s and 1930s for watching air displays at Hendon Aerodrome and still provides fine views to the north and to the west.
