We had been in the Greyhound pub for lunch opposite see my review, and afterwards we decided to walk around the park and the Carshalton Ponds.

The view from the other side of the ponds are extraordinarily, with the church and the Greyhound it looks like they are sitting on ponds, a painters dream.

We entered the park through a hole in the wall and watched the wildfowl going about there daily business, we also saw herons flying overhead.

We walked pass a little waterfall,before passing the war memorial that parades the falling,I bet this is very somber on armistice day.

We passed the old ford and the pond side cafe, before making our way back to pub car park before coming home.

So Im summary this village,will put you in a
Groove to walk around after your meal.

Thumbs up to Carshalton .

A lovely open space with a profusion of different trees and shrubs, winding paths, a small river, ponds with ducks and geese; or watch the squirrels at their antics.... Lots of park benches. You'd happily pay a tenner to spend time here... but it's free! There are also areas for football, tennis etc and a discreetly placed children's playground. A local gem of a park, no doubt about that.

My friend and I attended the Frost Fair that is held in December. This being the first one in three years. The park itself is vast and beautiful.
Lovely to see the ducks, geese, birds, squirrels etc. Just be aware as many parks are facing you will occasionally see a rat scurrying across the water ways....

Maybe not quite so lovely for young females now. A 15 year old girl has just (16.11.2014) been reported as having been raped in Grove Park, Carshalton. Her assailant is describes as a young, slim black man of about 25 years of age.

Since I was a lad of 6 (in 1960) I have visited this beautiful park and gardens to fish for tiddlers in the ponds/stream, feed the squirrels, play tennis on the hard/grass courts, marvel at the old mill and waterfall and now sit and watch the bowls (my Dad was a member of Carshalton Bowling Club and both his and my mum's ashes have been scattered over the green)
Nowadays my health isn't so good, but it is a great place to go and chill out with children and then maybe pop in to the Greyhound (a short walk from the ponds) for a cheeky pint and some bar snacks.
This park is a little gem of South London.

We cut through here every time we went to the High Road. It is well maintained and the duck pond and streams were so full of birds. It is a real centrepiece of the Town and worth the time to stop and relax. Great playing fields for the kids and lots to do.

It is a nice park generally with long walkways to stroll on, several bodies of water, duck pond, children's playground, lots of trees. There's nothing special here but very nice for an afternoon or evening walk. There are many restaurants nearby and one can walk around town and do the park in one day for sure.

We live nearby and visit at least 3 times a week.

It is quite easy to spend the whole day in the park. There is a large playground, crazy golf, duck ponds, waterfall, 'deep dark woods', ball court, field with goal posts and small exercise area.

The grounds are very well kept.

Positives:
*Variety of playground equipment.

*plenty of hungry ducks and squirrels to feed.

*plenty of space for a picnic.

*ample benches to sit and relax (or people watch).

Negatives:

*the playground gets extremely busy at weekends and especially when it's warm.

*the cafe that supplies the clubs for the crazy golf is not always open.

*if you have children who are not too confident on their feet, I would avoid the 'castle rock' area.

*monitor your children when feeding the ducks/geese. The railings are very old and are not considerate (it's a rail-no fencing). This is on one side of the ponds and over the bridge.

It's a shame there is no kayaking on the pond.... Just a thought.....
