Opened in June 1901 the park takes its name from Home Park Lodge, a house that formerly stood nearby and gave part of its gardens to the new park.
The central grassed area is extensively used for football during the winter season. The park has a children's playground, public toilets and changing rooms.
New pocket park
A new pocket park is being planned for the entrance to Home Park and work is expected to begin in autumn 2014. The new park is funded by the Council and a grant from the Mayor of London's Pocket Parks Fund
