Wormholt Park is a small park situated in the north of Shepherds Bush between the Uxbridge Road to the south and the busy A40 to the north in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham. It was opened in 1911; an open-air lido situated alongside it was added in 1923; and a bandstand was built in the park in 1931 and a bowling green in 1936. However, by the 1980s the neighbouring swimming pool and bowling green were closed and the park was in need of regeneration.
In 2009 a group of residents came together to initiate new plans for the park and in 2011 the group was formalised as the Friends of Wormholt Park. The Friends have been a driving force behind the plans for the redevelopment of the park, work on which will start in October 2015 and last about six months. We also organise events in the park and co-ordinate activities with other local community groups.
It is our aim to ensure the park sees a return to its former glory as an oasis within the surrounding urban landscape serving the needs of all residents, young and old, and as a focal point for the local community.
