Things are warming up in London, and the city’s major parks are slowly filling with the sun-seeking masses. We’ve got undying love for the epic royal parks, but sometimes we just can’t face fighting for a deckchair in Hyde Park, or trekking for miles in search of a free patch of green to call your own.
Here, we’ve rounded up London’s best local parks that deserve your attention. They may be smaller and less well known than their bigger brethren, but they pack a punch in the way of amenities and community spirit. Expect everything from top outdoor sports facilities to quiet picnic spots in these top parks – just don’t tell the locals we sent you.
Wanna see more of the great outdoors? Here's a video of the best parks and gardens in the city.
