Nature / Park
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.

  • This IS the template for medium sized local parks in London (or anywhere for that matter.) Superb facilities, activities and diversions for the community. Worth a dedicated trip. Sets the bar.
  • Best neighbourhood park in London. Skate park, tennis courts and TWO ping pong tables. Hours vary depending on the season; in summer the park is open until 10pm but during winter it closes at 5pm.
  • A wonderful and lively park, which is very well used by the local community. Great facilities such as tennis courts, skate park, children's playground, under-5s club, paddling pool as well as lakes, a deer enclosure, butterfly dome and organic garden. Clissold House has a cafe and space that can be hired for events. Love it!
  • This place is beautiful with two lakes, plenty of space to stroll, some dog free zones etc - the only downfall is that it gets way too busy on weekends. Kid's playground is very well equipped with plenty of stuff to do for kids aging from 1 to 12 or so. Again, I find it too busy, and it can be difficult to keep track of your kids, especially as there are too many exits. Not an issue for older kids perhaps, but with two toddlers it isn't exactly relaxing. The cafe is ok in terms of quality of food, but is vastly overpriced! Baked goods equally ok, but again overpriced. Much better to bring your own snacks for the kids. The coffee is ok, but the milk is always burnt in my opinion, so the coffee is served too hot. Not a big issue, but annoying for the price. The space itself is great, and set up perfectly for families with small kids. Lovely to sit outdoors in the summer.
  • Only the best park in London! Great café in the beautifully restored Clissold House looking out over one of the last remain sections of The New River. Animal and bird enclosures including a deer park, lakes, great play area, tennis courts, One O'Clock Club, skate park - all make it a great park to hang out in.
