Parks and open spaces
We have over 200 green spaces in the London Borough of Barnet, covering 848 hectares. This includes 16 Premier Parks.
Seven of these have achieved a Green Flag Award for 2008-2009.
There are many opportunities to take part in a range of activities in the parks and open spaces in the borough. Whether you want to take in the fresh air of the countryside or enjoy a restful afternoon in the park, we hope you enjoy your visit.
There are also a variety of community events including festivals, funfairs and circuses held in parks every year.
