The estate is flanked by two excellent parks. To the north, just over the boundary in Winchmore Hill is Grovelands Park which amongst other attractions has a pitch and put course and a lovely lake side café. To the south is Broomfield Park with its historic, although currently derelict, hunting lodge and impressive children’s playground.
St. Monicas (Catholic) and Walkers School are both within walking distance of the estate and both have performed well in recent years in the school league tables. This, fact together with the abundance of local parks, has made the area extremely popular with young families.
The closest station, Palmers Green, is situated on Aldermans Hill and has services to Moorgate (& Kings Cross at week-ends). The nearest tube is Southgate (Piccadilly Line).
