Bethune Park nature area

Bethune Park or Bethune Recreation Ground is a public park in Friern Barnet in the London Borough of Barnet. Most of it is mown grass, and it also has a large nature reserve area, a children's playground, a basketball court and a tennis court.[1][2]

The site was acquired by Friern Barnet Urban District Council in 1924, and opened as Bethune Recreation Ground in 1926.[3] It is called Bethune Park in notices on the site.

There is access from the corner of Manor Drive and Gresham Avenue, from Beaconsfield Road and from Bethune Avenue.
