#41 of 185 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.

  • My daughter was married at Clissold House and it was a great place, sun shining, bride and groom beaming, guests applauding. The place selected was chosen by our daughter and son-in-law and provided a very happy occasion, with lots of smiling faces. The well kept park offers many different photo opportunities, with plenty of space to wander, a small herd of fallow deer in an enclosure, a couple of goats, ideal for children interested in animals.
  • One of my favourite parks in London. Cafe is fab and a lovely place for a wedding. Dog walkers and families are welcome. The rose garden is gorgeous in June. Summer isn't complete without a boozy picnic here.
