The park covers 12 hectares (30 acres); it includes an open recreation space and a managed garden area that includes a rose garden, tennis courts and basketball courts. It received the Green Flag Award in 2006.
Downhills was the name of a big house built before 1728 that stood on the land. This land was bought in 1881 by British Land, but building development did not start till 1899. In response to a campaign by local residents, Tottenham Urban District Council bought the land, grounds and adjoining fields in 1901. The council preserved many features of the house grounds and also built several new amenities.
