About Park Group
We are a voluntary community group whose aim is to involve and encourage everyone who loves Gladstone Park to protect, promote and enjoy it as a place of historic and ecological interest as well as beauty.

Gladstone Park is a beautiful green public space situated in North West London, UK, situated between Dollis Hill, Willesden Green and Cricklewood.

We hold various events throughout the year and always welcome new fans of the park.

 Gladstone Park is on a hill with views across London. It has meadows, tree-lined avenues, a walled garden, a duck pond, sports pitches, tennis courts, an outdoor gym and children’s playgrounds.

Gladstone Park evolved from the Dollis Hill Estate and became a public park in May 1901. It was named after Sir William Gladstone, the former Liberal Prime Minister, who had spent many years using Dollis Hill House as his weekend retreat. The low walls around the footprint of the house are now a relaxation area at the top of the hill. In 2003/04, the park underwent a Heritage Lottery Fund refurbishment programme which restored many features. 
The park is situated on both sides of the Dudding Hill Line. This railway is currently only used by freight trains, but it has been subject to various railway schemes over the years, including a recent proposal for a radial North and West London Light railway (NWLLR), which might result in a light-rail stop being built at one or both ends of the park. There is a footbridge over the railway at the western end of the park, and a private road bridge (only used by Brent Parks Service) at the eastern end.
