Croydon Road Recreation Ground, Beckenham is situated in the London Borough of Bromley adjacent to Beckenham Hospital. The park is one of the most popular facilities in the borough for outdoor events ranging from May Queen pageants and charity fetes to firework displays and funfairs. The recreation ground boasts scenic views with an elegant bandstand (one of a pair by the Glasgow firm of McCallum & Hope Ltd - the other originally stood in the Alexandra Park), landscaped gardens, football pitches with changing rooms, a childrens' paddling pool and enclosed play area, a cafe, tennis courts, and basketball/netball facilities. There is also a thriving bowls club with immaculate greens. The park first came into use in the autumn of 1890 and officially opened a year later on 23rd September 1891. Entrances to the recreation ground can be found on Croydon Road and Village Way, Beckenham. On-street parking is available in Croydon Road and Village Way and a multi-storey car park is available above Sainsbury's store close to the High Street.
