Broomfield Park Conservatory


The conservatory at the centre of Broomfield Park in Palmers Green, north London, was first opened in 1934. It is a small space only about 1,000 square feet but it is full of exotic plants from all over the world. The place was abandoned for a long time after being vandalised and recently rebuilt and reopened. It is only open for a couple of hours on Wednesday and Sunday afternoons but its a gem maintained by local volunteers. The windows are clothed with Passion flowers and Bougainvillea; the centre island hosts many tropical plants such as bananas, Canna and ferns while succulents and orchids are featured as well. This project is a contributor to the legacy of this old and important park, which is a Site of Local Importance for Nature Conservation with a wide variety of habitats, amenities and community events.
