In 1987 it was registered by English Heritage on the Register of Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest in England.
It is some 28 acres (110,000 m2) in size. Within its boundaries are Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery and Perceval Lodge. These buildings and part of the boundary wall are also statutory protected structures of Grade I and Grade II respectively.
There is also a late Victorian ornamental lake bordering the House's rear lawn and further west a pond which has a pair of fountains, both of which attract waterfowl.
The land for the park and Pitzhanger Manor itself was acquired by the council in 1899 from Sir Spencer Walpole, which in turn had been bought by his father the Rt. Hon. Spencer Horatio Walpole. The sum paid was £40,000. It was opened to the public for the first time on 1 May 1901.
Walpole is also a ward of the London Borough of Ealing. The population at the 2011 Census was 13,330.

It's a very nice park with good playground for children. Some games are even water based, great addition for the summer season. Playground is for all ages too from 2/3 till 10+. In summer they also run fairs and concerts. Great place to have picnics too.
A lovely, well kept park. The national trust keep it well looked after. The two cafés, bookshop, and garden centre were very good too. The actual park is free. You can't get in the country house, but can see the beautiful building over it's mote from within the park. The park is quite small, so was easy to have a walk all around.
