A Park with a View
Panoramic Views from a hillside in North London
Location: Off Highgate High Street, N19 5JF
Description: Set on a hillside with panoramic views over London, 'Waterlow Park' includes historic Lauderdale House and its formal terraced gardens.
Waterlow Park has ponds on three levels, tree lined walkways, mature shrub beds and herbaceous borders, ornamental bedding, expanses of lawn, six tennis courts and a small playground younger children.
The park is home to much wildlife, including foxes and bats. It also has an aviary which is used as an injured animal recovery centre. It is staffed permanently by two gardeners and an attendant.
The park has seen the creation of a Waterlow Parks Centre, restoration of the terraced gardens and surrounding historic walls, the creation of timber boardwalks and viewing platforms at two of the ponds.
One for you, your family, and all who want to get back to nature and relax.
