Queen Mary's Park is a quiet, natural country park in the London Borough of Sutton, comprising of grassland, meadow and woodland. The park was laid out in the early 2000's having previously been the home of Queen Mary's children's hospital. The park has a beautiful avenue of mature trees, open vistas to the downlands, with natural and cut grassland and walking and cycling paths. In 2023 the Park received a coveted Green Flag Award®, a scheme that recognises and rewards well managed parks and green spaces.


The Friends of Queen Mary's Park

We are a group of local residents and park users who help to keep our lovely park attractive and pleasant for everyone to view and use. We meet formally three times a year. As an independent group of volunteers we are able to bid for funds to improve the park. Past improvements have included relaying the footpath through the Park, new seats, bins and information boards and bulb planting.

Special mention must be given to a Friends Group founding member, David Aylett. He was instrumental in securing funding for the Dog‑Free Picnic Area, which has been named after him. David passed away in 2018.
