Morden Park surrounds Morden Park House, a small Georgian country house, built in the 1770s for merchant and distiller John Ewart. Now a Grade II listed building, it houses Merton Registry Office. Merton College also stands on the former gardens and farm of the house, along with a leisure centre.

In the park, surrounded by trees, is a large circular mound. This has been identified as a possible burial mound from the Iron Age, Roman or Saxon periods. Archaeological investigations were carried out in the 1950s although no conclusive proof as to its date or purpose were found.

The park is popular with dog walkers and also offers a ‘trim trail’ and pitch and putt, should you wish to spend longer here. Alternatively, Lower Morden Lane’s Christmas lights are well worth a look if you are able to time your caching for the right season.
