Golders Hill Park Tuesday 27 April 2021

Our first socially distanced outing for some time is to Golders Hill Park. Tuesday 27 April. Meet at the cafe in the park at 11 am. The postcode and address for the cafe is Golders Hill, North End Way, NW3 7HD.

Our stay at home option will follow.

Golders Hill Park, as well as being very beautiful with ponds, a little zoo and views has a cafe offering takeaways, plenty of benches and even some outside tables to eat the takeaway on and loos. The park is of course adjacent to Inverforth House with its pergola and views across to Harrow, if anyone fancies going slightly further afield.

Buses 210 and 268 serve the park, both leaving from Golders Green tube station, which is a 14 minute walk away. The 268 also stops at Hampstead Station and the 210 starts from Finsbury Park. The park is also of course accessible by bike. There is a small car park for blue badge holders, North End Way NW3 7HE. The surrounding streets all have parking restrictions, there is a paying car park at Jack Straws Castle, up to 4 hours for £8.

Sue has provided some photos of the Golders Hill Park, so do come and sketch the real thing.

Easter and Primavera

What a great response from you all. Easter Sunday was really lovely day and now that groups of up to six people can meet outdoors, things seemed to have lightened up, especially with the sunshine and spring flowers. Lots of joyous daffodils.
