Woodberry Down Park

Woodberry Down Park is an impressive small linear park (0.5ha) in north Hackney, next to our neighbouring borough, Haringey.

The park has an interesting character with 'high specification' planting and a natural setting, and the site is orientated towards the New River and the West Reservoir. A stretch of Metropolitan Open Land runs along the New River with some mature existing trees retained. Woodberry Down Park will become an increasingly well used pocket of green space in this densely populated area of London.

Woodberry Down Park's first Green Flag

Woodberry Down Park was awarded its first Green Flag in 2016. The Green Flag award scheme is the benchmark national standard for parks and green spaces in the UK. The park retained its award in 2017 and will soon be judged for this year's entry.
