Top 5 reviews of Hilly Fields Park

As the name suggests it's not the flatest of spaces but it is definitely a large enough space of green to escape the urban sprawls of surrounding Lewisham, New Cross, Catford et al.

The Hills are quite high and steep so you do get good views of London on a clear day. more
Great hilly park, good play park for kids on the top, stone circle, cafe, and nice big tree's. more

A playground and swings for the kids if you have them, and a set of tennis courts should you feel the urge. There are great views of Canary Wharf on a clear day and an amble around the small stone circle is a must. I prefer to just lie back and read in the sun though.
Hilly Fields, To those that don't know then read Henry Williamson. He was born there, read 'The Dark Lantern' the first of his 15 vols called 'The Chronical of ancient sunlight' the library will have all 15 vols, beautiful descriptions of the Hilly fields from 1895 to the beginning of WW1.
The most detailed descriptions of life at those times of the whole area.
