Hillyfields Park  
Enfield Urban District Council bought 62 acres of farmland owned by Archdeacon Potter and opened Hilly Fields as a public park in 1911, as part of their policy of acquiring land for public open space as the area was being developed for housing. A bandstand was provided to the east of the park in 1921 and was a popular attraction, at August Bank Holiday in 1927 attracting an audience of nearly 5,000. It later became derelict. The Friends of Hillyfields was set up in 1998 with the aim of restoring the bandstand, raising funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund and restoration was competed in 2001. Hillyfields has been described as 'one of the most interesting grassland areas in the borough' and the Council continues to strive to maintain its diversity.
