Art in the Park will be back out in the park on Tuesday 19 May when we plan to visit Finsbury Park, London N4. We will meet at the Finsbury Park Café at 10:30am, where some of us may wish to stay and sketch people at tables outside, and then we will probably meet up there at lunchtime. Some of us will probably wish to continue working on our art into the afternoon.
Finsbury Park has a lake with an island, rowing boats, large water fowl
(Canada Geese) as well as parkland vistas, outdoor games areas, formal gardens
and café activity and offers a variety of art subjects. We will hope for a glorious sunny day but
if it is rainy the café has an external canopy and the lake is close by. You may wish to bring your sketching seat with you.
A link to a map of Finsbury Park can be found here; the café is near the southern edge of the
lake. We understand there is some parking inside the park but we have not visited to
confirm this. Parking outside the Park
is heavily controlled with all-day Controlled Parking Zones.
There are many buses serving this area: 29; 141;
210; 253; 254; 259; 279; 341; W3; W5 and W7 and two tube stations: Finsbury Park and Manor House.
We look forward to meeting up with regular Art in the Park participants and their guests on 19
May! Sue's mobile number is: 07975 864142 should you not be able to find us.
