Gunnersbury Park

Large municipal park between Ealing, Acton and Brentford. Has a boating lake, tennis courts (?) and a pitch-and-putt golf range. Also a huge amount of open space, bordered by trees. Museum in north east corner (latter best approached from Acton Town Station) and a bowling green in the middle of the north side. There is also a fishing lake in the southwest corner with what seems to be a ruined church spire along side it.

Immortalised in the song 'Gunnersbury Park' by the 'Hit Parade' on Sarah Records, cult indie label of the late eighties/early nineties....
