Princes Park is a small public park and Site of Local Importance for Nature Conservation in Temple Fortune in the London Borough of Barnet.[1] It has two tennis courts and a children's playground.

The area was shown as wooded on a 1796 map, and it has mature oak trees that predate local housing.[2] A wild service-tree and crab apple also show a long history, while hawthorn hedges are probably remnants of farm hedgerows.[3]

There is access from Oakfields Road and Park Way.
