Horn Park was one of three parks attached to Eltham Palace. The area was heavily wooded and was stocked with deer until the destruction of both during the English Civil War. The park became farmland until 1936 when the Metropolitan Borough of Woolwich began the construction of the Horn Park Estate. The estate was not completed until the 1950s, with work being interrupted by World War II.
Horn Park is served by several Transport for London bus services connecting it with areas including Bexleyheath, Blackheath, Bromley, Catford, Chislehurst, Crystal Palace, Eltham, Grove Park, Hither Green, Lee, Lewisham, Petts Wood, Sidcup, Sydenham and Welling. The nearest rail link to the area is at Lee station.
