Occupying an acre amongst the Victorian terraces of old Hanwell, King George V Playing field provides a blend of enjoyment and a feeling of repose. Its current arrangement provides a large nature inspired children's area, a small grassed area for games and a shaded seating area. Its design represents modern park composition and assiduous community involvement.

The park, referred to as ‘Sand Park' by local children, was officially titled to commemorate the death of King George V in 1951. It sits on former parish land of St Marys, which at the time provided allotments and grazing land for the animals of local people, earning the former name ‘Poors Piece'. Its alias may have changed over time but its intrinsic value to the local area has not. It remains a well-loved and used park.
