George Meehan House
The house was built as a private home in the Italianate style around 1865. It’s now used as council offices and houses the borough’s registry offices.
Mushroom House is a grade II listed building. It’s one of Haringey’s oldest buildings. It was formerly the lodge to the local manor house, Chitts Hill, which was demolished in the 1890s.
The Park has a volunteer group called Friends of Woodside Park.
