Did you know there is a giant redwood tree in Finsbury Park?

As part of the Haringey Walks Weekend, we’d like you to join us for a guided walk around some of the trees in Finsbury Park. The Tree Trail was created by the Friends to help park users to identify some of the most common trees in the park.

Starting close to the café near the boating lake, the trail showcases 16 trees on a mile long route through the park. A leaflet showing the route will be provided and we will also be following the route on a the TiCL smartphone app.

There are many classic British trees including an oak, beech (actually a copper beech), horse chestnut, holly and silver birch. Our favourites include a plane tree, the willow and the distinctly non-native giant redwood, which is hidden away in a copse close to Manor House gate.

We’ll also take a quick look at some of the new trees that were planted this spring and one or two hidden gems by the bowls green and in the American Garden.

If you’d like to stretch you legs and learn about tress at the same time, we do hope you can join us.

  • Walk begins: 11am on Sunday 2nd October. The walk should take no longer than an hour.
  • Meeting place: Please meet just outside the Finsbury Park Cafe near the Boat Hire hut about 10 minutes before we start.
