Back in 2010, the owners of the park, Hounslow and Ealing borough councils, commissioned a team of arboriculturists to inspect the parks 2,492 plus 74 groups of trees. The inspection concluded 2% of the tree stock required felling to ensure the park remained safe for all. A decade later, the ongoing conservation of the site presents an impressive glorious covering of evergreen, showed on the park map by year group; (1800-1835), (1835-1889), (1889-1925) and (1925-present).
Besides the glorious trees and plants Potomac lake, also known as the Fishpond, sets the scene off nicely, covering an area of 14.6 acres to a depth of 2.3 feet – but please do not test that!
The glory of Gunnersbury in summer is something to behold, and the winter version is not too bad either.
