Whitehall Recreation Ground (Bromley)

Brief Description

Whitehall Recreation Ground is a largely level site surrounded by residential housing. The perimeter tarmac path is partly tree lined within semi-mature horse chestnuts, oak, lime and sycamore. To the south-west is a bowling green enclosed within tall privet hedges. To the north of this is a small grassed area with scrubby rosebushes. To the north-east is a grassed dog free play area. The centre of the site is used for sports. By 2006 a pavilion near the play area has been taken down.
