Childs Hill Park
It is a mainly grassed area with two tennis courts, a bowls club, a children's playground, a cafe and toilets. Clitterhouse Brook, a tributary of the River Brent, runs along the southern edge in a concrete pipe which is visible in places.
There is access from Nant Road, Hodford Road and Granville Road.
Childs Hill was probably named after Richard le Child, a local landowner in the fourteenth century. In the late nineteenth century, there was rapid housing development, and in 1891 the land for Childs Hill Park was gifted by the Ecclesiastical Commissioners to the Hendon Local Board, which became Hendon Urban District Council in 1895. Hendon became part of the London Borough of Barnet in 1965.
