Islington parks on Flickr

Some photos of Islington parks, among others in London, here.

I particularly like the glimpse of the fernery at Astey’s Row, part of the New River Walk.

There are also pics of Bunhill Fields, Caledonian Park, Barnsbury Square, Gillespie Park, and Barnard Park.

Also Canonbury Square just up the road from me, not only the former home of George Orwell, but so prettily planted I’ve seen it used recently for wedding photos.

It’s become a bit of a truism that Islington has less green space than any other borough. Certainly we don’t have the vast expanses of green, some with lakes, of the outer boroughs. But what Islington’s parks lack in acreage, they make up for in character.

    Hello Bridget,
    I’ve just came across your blog and I found it very well done and interesting
    Especially as I am a first year student in Journalism at City University who just started a blog about Islington, its green policies and green areas.
    Check it out, comment and give me some advice on how to improve it
    If you have time 😉
