Horn Park is an area of South East London, within the Royal Borough of Greenwich. It borders the London Borough of Lewisham. It is located south west of Eltham.

History

Horn Park was one of three parks attached to Eltham Palace. The area was heavily wooded and was stocked with deer until the destruction of both during the English Civil War. The park became farmland until 1936 when the Metropolitan Borough of Woolwich began the construction of the Horn Park Estate. The estate was not completed until the 1950s, with work being interrupted by World War II.
