Cheam Park and Cheam Recreation Ground

Cheam Park originated as the grounds to Cheam Park House and was also known locally as Bethell House, after the family who lived in it until 1937. The house was then bought by the council and used to assemble gas masks in 1939-40. It was very badly damaged by a flying bomb during the Second World War and was demolished soon after.

The house stood at the top of the path which still wends its way through the ornamental grounds. The lodge to the house survives. It is Grade II listed.

Cheam Park and Recreation Grounds have a large range of amenities. For the sports enthusiasts it has a bowling green and pavilion, tennis courts and football pitches. There is a children’s playground with nearby cafe, and allotments with car park and disabled toilets.
