Wendell Park: a hub for the local community

About Wendell Park

Wendell Park is a well loved and much used park situated off the Askew Rd in the busy urban area of Shepherd’s Bush W12. It is at the intersection of Cobbold , Gayford, Wendell and Hartswood roads.

Its mature trees, large borders and green areas provide a slice of nature and a breath of fresh air amid the hustle and bustle of West London.

The park offers a central lawn area, perfect for kicking a ball, exercising your dog, having a sports day or just enjoying a family picnic on a sunny day.

The well equipped zoned-off playground is a wonderful space for young children to run and play in safety.

The park has a good sized dedicated dog zone as well as a fenced off dog-free zone with table and benches, opposite the playground.

There are many more benches along the path that circumambulates the central green area for those wanting to relax, have a quiet lunch or simply contemplate the world.
