It is mainly grassed with a children's playground, football pitches, tennis and basketball courts, a bowling green and a car park. There are flower beds which are the remains of a formal flower garden.[2]

The park is a roughly square area laid out in the late nineteenth century on land previously known as 'Mrs Cook's Farm', and Barnet Football Club played there in the 1889-90 season.[2]

Pymmes Brook and Pymmes Brook Trail go through the park.

There is access from Park Road, Victoria Road, Lawton Road, and by a footpath and footbridge from Cromer Road.
