Betts Park Sign
Anerley, last trace of the Croydon Canal.

Betts Park is a public park in Penge, London Borough of Bromley, England. It has a number of attractions, including part of the old Croydon Canal. It was opened in December 1928.[1]

Location[edit]

Betts Park is in the Anerley area of Penge and is publicly owned. The park's main entrance is in Anerley Road. There are other entrances in Seymour Villas, Croydon Road and Betts Way.[2]

History[edit]

The park was created from land donated by Mr Frederick Betts, a local property owner. The park originally included a public library too. It was opened in December 1928 and was named after Frederick's mother.[3]

The park also includes one of the last remnants of the short-lived Croydon Canal.[4]

Facilities[edit]

Its facilities now include a football pitch, ball court, goal posts, skateboard area, and a children's play area.[5]

Friends[edit]

London Borough of Bromley offers a scheme for locals to become a part of a friend group for the many parks. These groups are made up of volunteers who want to help discuss how the local parks are maintained, used and developed. Betts Park is part of this scheme.[6]
