Notes / History Morden Park is a large green space in Merton surrounding the 18th century (and now restored) Morden Park House.

Facilities in the park include a pitch and putt golf course, a cricket pitch, a playground, an outdoor gym, a summer paddling pool and a swimming pool.

Morden Park is undulating and lush, and is home to a large circular mound, surrounded in trees, which is thought to be an ancient burial ground from the Roman or Saxon periods.
