SHADBOLT PARK

In 2004 The CRA agreed to support a "friends" group from within its membership. Shadbolt Park was adopted by THE FRIENDS OF SHADBOLT PARK, who formed a liason with Epsom & Ewell Park Rangers. This enterprising group have done much to improve the park for users and to restore the Day Lily Garden behind Shadbolt Park House.

There are printed records telling the story of the huge undertaking involved in this ongoing project. We have created a digital archive that can be viewed HERE

THE DAY LILY GARDEN

The Day Lily Garden is situated behind Shadbolt Park House Surgery and opens to the public every summer. It is an amazing splash of tropical colour and well worth a visit.

THE FRIENDS OF SHADBOLT PARK are VOLUNTEERS who work in the Day Lily Garden every Saturday morning (with a short and merciful break in winter!). The latest Cuddingtonian article featuring the park and garden can be found HERE
