Summary

Westwood Recreation Ground is a rolling parkland bisected by the canalised Kings Water, dammed at the centre of the park to form a small pond, with a bridge over the channel. Dating from c.1930s, the park is almost entirely surrounded by houses, with access from east and north through Gothic style gates and the area is surrounded by bare 2m high concrete slatted walls. There are notable C19th limes and planes in the north corner and scattered trees include holly, lime and ash. The children’s playground is large and has landscaped mounds and a red metal bridge.
