How to find and where to park for the Morden Family Funday?
The Morden Family Funday is located in Morden Park, Morden. On the Sports Playing Fields (opposite the Mosque). There are two pedestrian entrances on London Road (A24), one opposite the mosque and another at the traffic lights just before Merton College, These are perhaps a ten minute walk from Morden Tube station. Buses 93 and 80 run from the tube to the entrances.
Public Car Parking can be accessed at the junction of Links Avenue and Hillcross Avenue, SM4 4AT. The cost is £2.00 per person which includes car parking for the whole day. Under 16s FREE.
Meanwhile, alternative parking can be located in the public car park at Morden Leisure Centre, although Pay and Display charges may apply. If you choose to park here then the quickest way to the Funday is to walk back to the main road (London Rd, A24) and enter the Funday by the gate just left of the traffics lights.
THE EVENT IS NOT LOCATED BY THE BANDSTAND or in Morden HALL Park (National Trust)
What's on at Morden Family Funday
Morden Family Funday Mission
To create an exciting, adventurous and action packed funday for all the family and community. By inviting local activity groups, charities and all working for the benefit of our community, (keeping the fair local is one of the main aims), we plan to involve one and all, old and young, in a day of fun and celebration. A funday for the community by the community.
The Morden Family Funday Events in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 have raised over £32,000.00 for local charities and
organisations. As requested by some of the organisers, the MFFD also supported
charities and organisations outside of the local area, even as far as Tanzania,
At the 2018 event we plan to highlight and support one local charity and donate as much as 50% of the funds raised from the event to the main charity, whilst continuing to support the other charities that attend.
In the forthcoming years we plan to rotate the main charity that we support. The charity chosen as the main charity will be selected by the MFD organisers committee.
