Small park featuring a memorial screen to Sir Nicholas Winton.

Location: 5 Oakfields Road, Golders Green, NW11 0JA

Description: Princes Park is a small public park and Site of Local Importance for Nature Conservation in Temple Fortune, Golders Green, North London.

It has always been a place of play and was formally laid out as a public park in 1923 and retains the tennis courts today.

In February 2018 a lovely memorial screen for the Humanitarian Sir Nicholas Winton was installed.

Sir Nicholas Winton was a British humanitarian, who organised the evacuation of 669 children prior to the start of the Second World War. Most of the children were Jewish, and from Czechoslovakia, with the evacuation taking place on the eve of the Second World War.

In an operation later known as the Czech Kindertransport, Sir Nicholas found homes for the children and arranged for their safe passage to Britain.
