Golders Hill Park, London
Golders Hill Park is a formal park in Golders Green, London. It is managed by the City of London Corporation as part of the parkland and commons in and near Hampstead Heath, and is part of the Hampstead Heath Site of Metropolitan Importance for Nature Conservation. Unlike the rest of the Heath, Golders Hill Park is closed at night.Plan a London trip in moments using our itinerary builder.
It adjoins the West Heath part of Hampstead Heath and is on the site formerly occupied by a large house which was bombed during World War II. Its main characteristic is an expanse of grass, but it also has a formal, beautifully tended, flower garden next to a duck pond with a small humpback bridge, a separate water garden, which leads onto a larger pond with both black and white swans, a separate area for fallow deer, near to a recently renovated small zoo. There are also tennis courts, a well subscribed playground and a putting green. A restaurant stands at the top of the park, on the site of the original house.
During the summer, children's activities are organised and through June and July there is live music on the bandstand on Sunday afternoons. Unlike most of Hampstead Heath, dogs must be kept on a lead in the park.
The zoo contains a variety of animals and birds, such as donkeys, coatis, rheas, maras, red junglefowl, Lady Amherst's pheasants, red-legged seriemas, ring-tailed lemurs, kookaburras, sacred ibis, cattle egrets, little egrets, Eurasian eagle-owls and white-naped cranes.

We are surrounded by nature, and in contact with the ground. The Park attracts you but not too much, especially with tourists, I've seen a few, which I like because it allows me to relax fully and enjoy this wonderful park.

This is my most favourite park in London. No it is not one of the top rate ones like Hyde Park. But there is something quaint as well as endearing about this. A great place to take your kids out. A wonderful place for a long contemplating walk. A romantic place too. That this park is located in the heart of an orthodox Jewish locality may be adding to the exotic quotient. We used to frequent this place during our London days. Love the quaint restaurant by the entrance too!
Beautiful park with many different types of animals to look at. Fantastic place for a picnic, but the best feature is that it's a wonderful place to take children for a morning or afternoon out, away from their tablets, tvs etc. Lovely flowers, plants and pond with wildlife. There's also a cafe by the gates on the same road as Golders Green station where you can get food and drinks. Great place, parking available, fully recommend.
