The park was previously the grounds of the eighteenth-century Morden Park House, which is now Grade II listed and used as Council offices. In 1945 the house and park were purchased by Merton and Morden Urban District Council. Some oaks are over 300 years old, and bird species include green and great spotted woodpeckers, coal tits and spotted flycatchers. Grassland areas have wildflowers and a range of butterflies.
There is access from Epsom Road, Morden Lane and London Road.
