Welcome to the Mill Hill Park Residents’ Association
The Mill Hill Park Conservation Area in Acton, London W3 covers an early garden suburb, the Mill Hill Park Estate, laid out in the 1870s by two famous father-and-son builders, both called William Willett.
The Association was established in 2004 when many residents came together to oppose the loss of a public park adjacent to the Conservation Area. Since then, the Association has grown from strength to strength and has helped build a real sense of community and pride in the neighbourhood.
We aim to improve our amenities, preserve and protect the environment, and celebrate and conserve our buildings for their architectural and historical interest. We also meet regularly for social events.
In June 2011 we celebrated the creation of the Mill Hill Park Estate by installing a plaque to its founder Richard White on a fragment of his regency mansion Mill Hill House.In February 2012 we planted a community orchard with the help of the London Orchard Project and Ealing Transition and in October 2014 we replanted the Crown Street Pocket Garden after having a submitted a successful bid for funding from South Acton Ward Forum to redesign and replant the garden.
In 2011 and 2013 we presented awards, sponsored by Poores of Acton, for the most attractively presented and conserved properties in each of the five streets in the Mill Hill Park Conservation Area.
