We're starting off this week with a brand new guide - Brixton! An up & coming neighborhood with lots to offer young visitors & people interested in a less-'tourist'y experience in London, Brixton is noteworthy for it's many great restaurants & night life spots.
Brixton’s rising trendiness also gives rise to more hustle and bustle in the area. When you need to take a deep breath and relax in an open space or run all that stress away, there are plenty of parks to choose from!
Ruskin Park - This Edwardian park was awarded the Green Flag for keeping up exceptional park standards. This well-manicured park also includes a bandstand, children’s play area, and several sports pitches and courts available for hire.
Myatts Field Park - Myatts Field Park is a recently renovated Victorian park perfect for community. With a wildlife area, cafe, greenhouse, and other centres designed to include the community, you’ll never get bored.
Brockwell Park - The perfect example of a historic park, Brockwell contains ornamental ponds, a 19th century clock tower, and other historic buildings. Stroll around in the sunshine, relax, and pretend you’re in a bygone era!
Belaire Park - Between a pond, wildlife area, sports pitches, a garden, and play area, you’ll need to visit Belaire Park several times to see all it has to offer. After relaxing for a few hours, you can also grab a bite to eat at the Beauberry House cafe.
Milkwood Park - Milkwood Park is the perfect little spot to relax and have some quiet time along a nature trail. Or if you’re up for a game of basketball, there’s a free court. Either way, you can soak up some sun in this little park tucked between Camberwell, Herne Hill, and Brixton.
