Proposals for Boston Manor Park

Closes 28 Mar 2019

Opened 23 Feb 2019

Overview

Boston Manor Park is the largest public open space in the Brentford area, at 13.75 hectares (34 acres). It has been a public park since 1924 when the house and surrounding grounds were purchased by Brentford Urban District Council from the Clitherow family, who had owned the estate since the late 1600s. 

Boston Manor Park is a Conservation Area and is also a Site of Importance for Nature Conservation (SINC). It is significant as part of the former estate and grounds of Boston Manor House and has a number of surviving historic features, including the estate lake and veteran planted trees; it also has a stretch of the 1790s Grand Union Canal flowing alongside and part of the River Brent flowing through. It has rich and varied habitats for wildlife and is an important green corridor.

The Vision

The Park has received a Development Award from the National Lottery to work up a bid and local consultation has identified the following priority areas:

  • Investing in Park infrastructure and making the Park safer to use
  • Providing greater access throughout the Park
  • Enhancing the biodiversity value of the park
  • Telling the story of the Park
  • Providing a wider range of activities for people using the Park

The bid will be submitted to the National Lottery in June 2019 with an outcome expected at the end of 2019.

Get Involved

A proposed £ 5.1 million scheme for improvement  in the Park (depending on a successful National Lottery bid) is now out for public consultation.
