Protecting the environment

Our parks and green spaces are a key resource for our communities, providing vital leisure, recreation and sporting opportunities and the chance to escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. As one of London’s most popular parks, Finsbury Park is a special place for many people, and we are working with partners to make sure it remains a vibrant and pleasant place for the enjoyment of all residents.

This page contains information on what is being done to protect and improve the physical environment in Finsbury Park and the surrounding area.

Keeping Finsbury Park tidy

We are incredibly proud of Finsbury Park and are actively working to make sure it is a safe and welcoming space for everyone. The good management of the park has been consistently recognised with a Green Flag award (external link) from the environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy.

Cleaning up the New River Walk

Hackney Council conducted an Environmental Visual Audit and clean-up along parts of the New River Walk in May 2022 and was able to address environmental crime, littering and dumping of waste in the river.

Hackney Council have invited Friends of Finsbury Park to join them in another EVA and Clean up to include the New River Walk which runs into Finsbury Park.

It is hoped that the clean-up will inspire users to report concerns, pick up any litter and enhance the environment for other users.
