Summerhill Park

A secret neighbourhood park in the heart of the city centre



Summerhill Park offers the peace and tranquillity that you get miles from anywhere, just minutes from the hustle and bustle of Westgate Road.

The community park is at the centre of Summerhill Square, surrounded by stunning houses (many of them listed), including the home of Robert Stephenson on Greenfield Place.

The park is mainly grassed lawns, flowerbeds and shrubs, with a small play area.

The Summerhill Trust is an active community group, established in 2010 and custodians of the neighbouring Summerhill Bowling Club.
