Clissold Park, London

#39 of 159 in Parks in London
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, philanthropist 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.

  • My favourite park. Had many kinds of wildlife. There are goats, birds, butterflies, two huge ponds and water fountains. Very clean and looked after. Friendly atmosphere and lots of families and students. Open fields for football and there are basketball pitches. They even have a tennis court and a outdoor pool for the kids in the summertime.
