#42 of 186 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.
Clissold 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.

  • One of the best parks in Hackney. Spacious, scenic and well kept. Kids playground is fantastic, my kids will spend hours playing around here if they could. The animals are the main attraction and thus makes this park different to others, a bit like a farm with all the other amenities of a park.
  • The complete park. It's got wide open spaces for roaming and picnics and games without getting overcrowded. It's got manicured garden bits. It's got felled trees and long grass. It's got two incredible goats, deer, ducks, swans, budgies and parakeets that children never grow tired of. It's got a playground that pleases every age group. It's got tennis courts in good condition. It's got brilliant and caring park rangers and the most generous opening hours it can manage. It's got a gorgeous Georgian house for meals and snacks. It's got a clever running path around the outskirts of it that keeps joggers out of people's way and vice versa. it's got the odd festival. And it's got a cracking pub on two of its four corners. Win.
