Cherry blossom, Highbury Fields

Cherry blossom in Highbury Fields

Highbury Fields is Islington’s largest park, since nearby Clissold Park is technically in Hackney. It was bought for a public park in 1885 while various speculators developed the surrounding area into housing. Most of the park’s avenues are lined with London Plane trees.

Islington Council is consulting on improvements to Highbury Fields at the moment, so if you live in Islington and want a greater range of tree species, please get in touch with them.
