About Park Group
Woodside Park was first laid out around the turn of the century and is set around George Meehan House the old Wood Green Town Hall.

A fantastic natural play area including play boulders, stepping logs, timber stilts and vertical climbing trees, was installed in the park in February 2016. This compliments the current children’s facilities in the park such as the older children’s play area - which is due to be upgraded in 2019. There is also a great toddler play area for younger children to enjoy.

There is a Braille Garden in the northwest corner of the park which is an extension of the Woodside Road entrance. The area contains seating, aromatic planting and Braille messages.

Two of Haringey’s historic buildings are located within the park. George Meehan House, was built as a private residence in the ‘Italianate’ style around 1865. It is now used as council offices and houses the borough’s registry offices. The Grade II listed Mushroom House, one of the borough’s oldest buildings, was formerly the lodge to the local manor house Chitts Hill (demolished in the 1890s).

I Can Care, an organisation which started its life with the Indian Cultural and Arts Network in 1994 for addressing the needs of Asian elderly, has a small building in Woodside Park situated to the south of Woodside House.

A restaurant, Fatisa, is located in the South Western corner of the park and offers a blend of Italian and Mediterranean cuisine.

Little Friends Nursery is a privately owned business, open to children under 5 years opened in the park in September 2014 and operates from three rooms, a large hall and a huge garden area in the Pavilion in Woodside Park (formerly the bowling club).

Fun Fair

The north side of the park has been recently re-landscaped with a sports pitch and adventure playground. Woodside House is approached from the west and south by tree-lined drives with forecourts and central circular flower beds
Woodside Park is a public park in Wood Green. The site was originally part of the much larger Chitts Hill Estate which covered a large part of Wood Green and beyond. Most of what later became the park was developed as Earlham Grove House and grounds in 1865
