During the Covid 19 shutdown Whitewebbs welcomed a huge number of visitors. The Friends of Whitewebbs produced a free walking map to help those who who wanted to explore our beautiful park.
The golf course is back in business and very, very busy. During the shutdown we were able to walk the course and discover the rich biodiversity of this 90 year old course.
To help individuals and families explore further we have printed out guides and activity sheets.
Copies of the map and the various exploration activities are available from the display in the shelter next to the Beggars Hollow cafe. Click here for the information about activities and downloadable guides.
We still don’t know what is happening to our park. We have had an assurance in writing that all footpaths, not just “rights of way” giving access to the ancient woodland will be protected. Everything appears to have been held up by Covid but we have have been told that a shortlist of bidders will be made “shortly”
Petition exceeds target – thanks to everyone who signed, collected signatures and shared the links
As a result of the target being exceeded we will be presenting the petition to a full council meeting on Wednesday 26th February at 7.00 pm. All supporters welcome – there will be a wired overflow room if the public galleries are full. We are allowed a 5 minute presentation, strictly timed, with 15 minutes for councillors to debate the issues.

Whitewebbs Park is in Enfield, on the northern edge of London. It is situated between the parks of Forty Hall and Hilly Fields giving users access to woodland, parkland and more formal gardens for walking. Paths vary from tarmac to very rough (and muddy). There are two cafes and a carvery within the parks, car parking, toilets, a shared cycle path, a bridle way and a public golf course. There are several pubs on the edge of the parks. The post codes for sat navs are:
Beggars Hollow Cafe and car park EN2 9JW
The Golf Course and Toby Carvery EN2 9HH
Forty Hall EN2 9HA
Public transport to these parks is not good. Most bus routes and train stations involve a brisk 10 – 15 min walk. There is a bus from Enfield Town to Crews Hill via Clay Hill running every hour except Sundays.
