A great park to enjoy the great weather. I hadn't realised I had lived near this bad boy of a park for a while now. Since we experienced two of the very few days of sun we get a year, I decided to venture out.
This park is huge - but not as big as Finsbury Park, but I'd say a lot nicer. There are two ponds with plenty of wildlife including baby ducklings! I managed to find two cafes and also...more
So much in one Park!
The park is big enough to have get facilities and community without being too tourist.
They have a little zoo, a pond with swans, a paddle pool, a little restaurant (that's now been done up), a wood chop running track, picnic areas and wide open grassy areas.

The park itself is superb for jogging, picnics in the summer and a great detour en route to Stoke Newington from Highbury.
