Clissold Park is a designated community park (22.57ha) in Stoke Newington, within the London Borough of Hackney. Its facilities include children's playgrounds, sports fields, a bowling green, tennis courts, the café and some other attractions including terrapins in its lakes, as well as deer, quail, and rabbits. The park also comprises remains of the New River, and the Capital Ring has some of its paths running through a small section of the park.HistoryClissold House was built, in the latter half of the 18th century, for Jonathan Hoare, a City merchant, Quaker, philanphropist and anti-slavery campaigner. The park was created to be his idyll, and the stretch of water which wends its way around the house was once part of the New River, a canal that supplied London with clean water from Hertfordshire.

  • We attended my cousins wedding in the park which was a wonderful an very beautiful setting for the evening. I'm sure a walk through this park on a warm summers eve would help anyone relax.

Friendly atmosphere and lots of families and students. Open fields and football and basketball pitches. They even have a tennis court and an outdoor pool for the kids in the summertime.
  • A hidden gem in London - it has an animal area with deer and birds in that you can look round - tennis courts, children's play area, pool, ponds with ducks and lots of space to relax. It has a cafe in the middle for drinks and snacks. Very pretty and is also near Stoke Newington Church street where there are lots of bars, cafes and restaurants.
  • Big Park in Stoke Newington skatepark,café, tennis courts, Animals and where Stoke Newington fc train every weekend.
  • Plenty of things to do for the whole family. Nice skateboard park, tennis and basketball court. The cafe is a bit pricey but has a good selection, friendly staff and plenty of place for a picnic.
  • A park with every need available. Lovers strolls to family picnics, historic buildings to modern playgrounds, a splash pool for the little ones and tennis courts for all, maybe a quiet sit down around the large pond or the sweet sounds of the birds in their aviary located near the home of the deers. Plenty of choices for all or just stay for tea and a nibble at the cafes which also sell ice - cream too.
