About Park Group
The park is located opposite Turnpike Lane Underground station, on Green Lanes. It offers several amenities including an outdoor gym and basketball courts.

The name 'Duckett’s' originated from Laurence Duket, a thirteenth-century landowner.

The wildflower meadows on Duckett's Common contain more than 30 wildflowers native to the area. They have been established since 2011 in more than 10,000 volunteer hours by members of Christ Church London, other Christians from around the Turnpike Lane area and local residents. The wildflower meadows are summer meadows with one hay cut in mid-August and a second towards the end of the year. Many insects such as bumble bees, butterflies and wild solitary bees are attracted by the nectar rich wildflowers.
