Northala Fields is a park located in Northolt, in the London Borough of Ealing. It was opened in 2008 and consists of four artificial hills standing next to the A40 Western Avenue, as well as several fishing lakes, a large field area a children's play area and adjacent café. The hills were constructed using rubble from the demolition of the original Wembley Stadium, which was closed in 2000 and demolished in 2003. The park was created as part of the Northolt and Greenford Country Park project, and backs onto the older Rectory Park.

The name "Northala" is how the old manor of Northall (Northolt) was recorded in the Domesday Book in 1086.
It is situated on what was the Royal Borough of Kensington Playing Fields after being leased to them in 1938. The section of the Ealing Road that formed the eastern perimeter was then renamed Kensington Road. The nearest station is Northolt which is 1.14 km away from the park.
The hills featured in a memorable episode of the British TV show Taskmaster, series 2 episode 1. Contestants had to place three exercise balls on a yoga mat on top of one of the hills.

  • Spectacular views on a clear day you can see as far as the Gherkin and Canary Wharf. Clean and fresh, good children and adults. Literally on my doorstep. Nice cafe that serves breakfast and lunch. Lovely play area for the children. Mounds are incredible.
  • Thoroughly enjoyed a family afternoon here. Great fun climbing the mounts and what a great view of the London skyline. Good playgrounds for the little ones as well. The cafe is also great and so are the prices.
