Canons Park is nestled between the borders of Edgware and Stanmore and has a fascinating history dating back hundreds of years.
The park boasts wide open spaces for walking, sports, picnicking; shady woodland walks with wonderful displays of spring bluebells and wild garlic (from late April to early May).
Our parkrun event (every Saturday at 9am throughout the year) regularly attracts over 200 runners and walkers of all abilities. (As of 21 March parkrun has been cancelled until further notice, due to the Covid-19 virus.)
The park boasts a family friendly area with an adventure playground, climbing boulder, basketball hoop and green gym.
GOOD FRIENDS CAFE - OPENS 27 MARCH 2021 FOR THE SEASON (CLOSED MONDAYS)
The Good Friends Cafe will be open this weekend (20/21 March 2021) and six days a week throughout the season from 27 March (closed Mondays), serving a selection of food, home made soups, hot and cold drinks, and delicious home made ice creams and lollies. Seating will not be provided whilst social distancing rules continue. The cafe will be open every day from 11am to 3pm and until 4pm on weekends (weather permitting!).
Table Tennis bats can be hired from the cafe for use on the tables in the playground.
INVOLVING THE COMMUNITY IN CANONS PARK
Some events are currently on hold until the virus has abated but please check 'Events' online or watch out for posters around the park to see if we have any new activities in the pipeline.
Hopefully this year we will again be able to hold our annual Kids' Fun Day, musical events and bird watching walks as well as other popular activities.
