About your park
Railway Fields is just off the busy road of Green Lanes. It’s behind magnificent iron gates, and is one of Haringey’s most hidden and wonderful treasures.
The 2-acre site was used as a railway goods yard in the 1950s. Even today coal can be found onsite.
We acquired the land in the early 1980s. In 1986 we turned the site into a wildlife haven and environmental teaching centre for local schools.
In 1990 Railway Fields was officially declared a statutory local nature reserve.
Green Flag Award
First awarded the prestigious Green Flag Award in 2004, it has kept it ever since.
