The largest park Camden Council runs, with good wildlife habitats and a visitor centre.
Set on a hillside with panoramic views over London, it includes historic Lauderdale House and its formal terraced gardens.
The park has recently been improved and restored. This has seen the creation of a Waterlow Parks Centre.

I have to join the praise for this wonderful park.
It's a beautiful green oasis in the middle of Highgate, right next to Highgate cemetery (which is definitely worth a visit too - see my separate review for it).

A few weeks ago I joined my friends for a walk in Waterlow Park with their dalmatian whippet mix pup, MoMo. Fall was quickly turning to winter and autumn hued leaves were all around.
While it was too cold for a picnic on this visit, I definitely want to come back for one in the spring.
Located near on a hillside near the posh Highgate Village, views of London from this park are very pretty....more
