New Community Garden Project ready to bloom

An area on the corner Hornsey Park Road/Clarendon Road has been designated as a new Community Garden Project. A basic layout has been put forward, with the details yet to be confirmed. Join the Parkside Malvern Residents Association meetings to have your say!

    1. The name is completely made up. The obvious choice would have been Hornsey Park RA because Hornsey Park was the name given to the area by the Imperial Property Investment Co when it developed the area from c.1880 but it could not be used because the Association does not cover Alexandra Road, Ravenstone Road or The Avenue, which are part of the 'Hornsey Park Estate'. Things were further complicated when Haringey Council used Hornsey Park on new road signs more extensively than agreed (from Tower Terrace in the north to the Burghley Roads in the south), an area far greater than the original Hornsey Park. A meeting was held to find a name when the Association was formed and Parkside Malvern was agreed - Park for Park Ridings, Malvern for the obvious reason but the meaning of side has been lost in time - perhaps it refers to Hornsey Park Road as the edge of the area.

      The loss of trees is becoming an issue locally. The wonderful false acacia at the junction of Mayes Road and Coburg Road was removed because it ‘had a fungus’ - just in time for the planning application to build on the petrol station site beside it.
