Broadway Market Green is a relatively new park, established in 1994. The site has undergone several changes from semi-open space to entirely infrastructure, to open space once again.
The site was directly affected by the Luftwaffe bombings in 1941, resulting in the establishment of prefab housing that was later replaced by the residential buildings present today. There has been little development since 1994.
The Council aims to solidify the park's designation as a children's play area over the next 5 years.
Broadway Market itself has a vibrant history with the market as a constant structure since before the 20th Century. Originally a busy fruit and vegetable market, it was a valuable grocery centre for local residents. Although the character and nature of the market today is very different, it remains a valuable asset to the area.
