About your park 

History 

In 1891, the Hornsey Local Board purchased land from local landowner, Colonel Warner. Further land was later purchased and combined to become Priory Park. 

More than 25,000 people visit the park each year. Many enjoy events in the pavilion or picnic in the philosopher’s garden, which is a dog-free area. 

The park contains a fountain, unveiled in 1909 and made from 50 tonnes of Lamorna granite. The fountain is now used as a planter. 

Green flag award 

First awarded the prestigious Green Flag Award in 2003, the park has kept it ever since.
