Highbury Fields
Highbury Fields situated just to the east of Highbury Gardens, is the largest open space in the borough of Islington. Across its 29 acres there are recreational facilities including eight tennis courts, a café, swimming pool and a football court at the north end. The park is surrounded by highly desirable residences, which are elegant examples of Georgian and Victorian town houses. Highbury Fields is Islington's greatest asset and is fiercely protected by the local Council and surrounding residents. As green open space in London is so hard to come by these days Highbury Fields is a real gem treasured by locals and visitors alike. In the warm summer months families, friends, young and old come to relax and play on the grass or picnic under one of its many ancient elms.
