Parkfield Recreation Ground

Parkfield Recreation Ground (Bromley)

Brief Description

Parkfield Recreation Ground is a largely level open space of mown grass enclosed by chain link fencing and bordered by trees and shrubs. The aspect to the west and south is semi-rural whereas local authority housing dominates the view to the north and east. The close proximity of the housing probably accounts for the lack of facilities. The site is bordered to the south-west by Bromley Golf Course.
