Brunswick Park is a populous neighbourhood and public park/set of small sports grounds in the London Borough of Barnet. It is north of New Southgate and to the south of Oakleigh Park.

Amenities[edit]

Its park consists of a playground, sports field and tennis courts; the southwest has the access to and is bounded by the North London Business Park. The many surrounding roads include Brunswick Park Road, Brunswick Avenue and Brunswick Crescent.

Amenities Brunswick Park Primary and Nursery School [2] and St Andrew the Apostle Greek Orthodox School.

New Southgate Cemetery and the North London Business Park front Brunswick Park Road; the former, opened in 1861, began as the Great Northern Cemetery. A modern housing estate has taken part of its grounds, in the vicinity of the original main entrance.

History[edit]

The business park was the site of a large Northern Telecom factory, built for Standard Telephones and Cables (STC). Opened in 1922, the factory became a major local landmark and for many years was referred to by its workers and the local population as 'The Standard'. During World War II a German bomb fell on the factory, killing 33 people.
