Surprisingly unknown park in South London, that's in the care of the National Trust. The River Wandle twists through the middle, and is well defended by geese. There's a former snuff mill to have a look at (assistance dogs only), and a city park for kids.
P&D car park, not National Trust. WCs at Riverside Cafe. Cafe and summer refreshment kiosk. Walks leaflet available from the bookshop. Dogs can be off-lead, except in the rose garden and near the buildings.
Your choice of lovely paths in the park.

Went here today with Otto for the first time... Great Park with lots of areas to explore. Many spots to jump into the 'Wandle' river - a great afternoon out! Bit difficult to find parking but just went onto the garden centre one, which seems to be the best entrance anyway- just walk over the bridge and you are there. A hidden treasure...

This is a great park for dogs. NT Cafe is good but expensive with outside seating for you when you have your dog with you.. River Wandle runs through park - plenty of streams and a shallow river for your dog to swim in. An NT member and so don't pay for parking although I hadn't noticed that this was a P & D car park.
