Tatem Park & Hollywood Gardens  
Tatem Park and Hollywood Gardens are on a former gravel pit owned by the Tatem sisters who gave the site to Edmonton Borough Council in the 1930s for use as a public park. The park was opened on 21st June 1938 and is in two distinct parts: the ornamental Hollywood Gardens laid out on the level part of the site in the south, and to the north the less formal areas made out of the quarry itself. Hollywood Gardens are so-called in honour of Alderman Hollywood, former Mayor of Edmonton, and occupy a triangle between two busy roads at the junction of which is the entrance with nice period gates flanked by red-brick piers and railings. In 1983 further landscaping was carried out in the central area with the accent on wildlife conservation, creating a Nature Area, with over 1,000 trees planted, together with wild flowers and native grasses.
