The area known as Pymmes Park dates back to 1327 when William Pymme built a mansion here. Prior to 1578 the estate changed hands several times until Thomas Wilson a statesman bought the estate in 1579. In 1582 William Cecil, 1st Baron Burghley, Lord High Treasurer, purchased the estate which remained in the family until 1801. The Ray family owned the estate from 1808 to 1899. The estate was then purchased by the local council to provide public open space following an increase in the local population. The park was opened to the public in 1906.
The park contains a Victorian walled garden, bounded on three sides by Grade II listed walls, containing an ornamental pond, herbaceous borders and bedding plants. Access is on request to a member of the Parks staff.
In recent years, the park has undergone major changes due mainly to the widening of the North Circular Road in the 1990s. An application to the Heritage Lottery Fund was successful and £2.8 million was granted for the restoration of the Victorian Parkland in a scheme known as the Pymmes Park restoration project.

One of my first parks with my kids. Bring bread and feed the ducks. There's a place that's a peaceful scenery. Also area that includes a floor trampoline a swinging net, slide swings and a zip line and a few more.
The air was cool and refreshing with plenty people running walking cycling and enjoying the use of the equipment. The park grounds was clean with a couple staff tending to the grounds. The only downside is that the toilets seems to be locked with a massive padlock with an unpleasant smell.
