Fassnidge Park
Fassnidge Park
According to Hillingdon Council "Fassnidge Park is a popular open space situated in the heart of Uxbridge [which has won the coveted] "Green Flag Award". Fassnidge is a traditional Edwardian formal park which covers four acres and offers a bowling green, tennis courts, playground and skate park. It also provides horticultural interest, with features including shrub beds, ornamental planting and mature trees" LinkExternal link .

The site was donated to (the then) Uxbridge District Council by Kate Fassnidge, widow of landowner Edward Fassnidge who had died in 1921. It was formerly the garden of their Uxbridge house, The Cedars. Originally named The Fassnidge Memorial Recreation Ground, it is an unusually well-preserved early C20th park -
its layout and features are remarkably little changed since opening in October 1926; it was the first recreation ground dedicated to the public in Uxbridge LinkExternal link .
