Mayow Park

A smallish park in Sydenham, located in the middle of a residential area fairly near Sydenham Station.

Opened as the Sydenham Recreation Ground in 1878 after purchase of land from the Mayow Adams family, it's now overlooked on the north by the tower blocks of the Dacres Estate, built in 1962.

Facilities include a children's playground, and tennis courts.
