Golders Hill Park is a formal park in Golders Green, London. It is managed by the City of London Corporation as part of the parkland and commons in and near Hampstead Heath, and is part of the Hampstead Heath Site of Metropolitan Importance for Nature Conservation. Unlike the rest of the Heath, Golders Hill Park is closed at night.It adjoins the West Heath part of Hampstead Heath and is on the site formerly occupied by a large house which was bombed during World War II. Its main characteristic is an expanse of grass, but it also has a formal, beautifully tended, flower garden next to a duck pond with a small humpback bridge, a separate water garden, which leads onto a larger pond with both black and white swans, a separate area for fallow deer, near to a recently renovated small zoo. There are also tennis courts, a well subscribed playground and a putting green. A restaurant stands at the top of the park, on the site of the original house.During the summer, children's activities are organised and through June and July there is live music on the bandstand on Sunday afternoons. Unlike most of Hampstead Heath, dogs must be kept on a lead in the park.The zoo contains a variety of animals and birds, such as donkeys, coatis, rheas, maras, red junglefowl, Lady Amherst's pheasants, red-legged seriemas, ring-tailed lemurs, kookaburras, sacred ibis, cattle egrets, little egrets, Eurasian eagle-owls and white-naped cranes.

  • This Park is located a few blocks from Golders Green station. It is a beauty. A peace and tranquillity. With animals, few, not as a Zoo, but with some animals to see. they come full of squirrels, that practically up to one to get something to eat. the sunset, the Sun, a slight Hill. A beautiful place for a walk or simply relax after going through the center of London. Ahhh and an ice cream place, run by an Italian in calabria, riquisimosssssssss. I recommend taste tiramissu.

  • Unlike the untouched Hampstead Heath, Golders Hill is a great example of a meticulously maintained park. It has an amazing zoo that's open to the public, including a big dear and ostrich enclosure. There is also a nice butterfly house (open at specific times) and a number of small gardens within. Great restaurant area and ice cream shop.
  • Lol lol lol
  • Awesome park, great for families. There is a small zoo area, a huge playground, and lots of open green space. Has a refreshment area with food, drinks, etc. In a nice, calm neighborhood.
  • This is a really lovely well kept Park. I go up there early mornings and all you see are joggers and a few walkers. The Park is really well laid out, with the Deer Park and lots of very nice planting, water features and a whole host of other things to enjoy. I really like the little bridge which crosses over to one of the small beautifully planted gardens. A real paradise on a nice sunny day.
  • I liked it, because of the green fields and the Pergola can be beautiful in the sunshine. Good place to make gorgeous photos. Must go to see and make a nice trip.
