About the park

The Caledonian Park is Islington’s second largest park at 7.4 hectares. It has a children’s natural play area and conventional playground equipment, extensive grassy space for ball games, picnic-ing etc, flower and nature gardens, a small orchard and woodland areas and walks plus handsome 1855 clock tower and railings.

On Tuesdays and Thursdays the tower welcomes visitors for pre-booked open-day visits up the tower led by parks staff and volunteers, and on Saturdays there are guided tours up the tower with talks about the history of the park and tower.

Visit the new Cally Clock Tower Centre website to learn more and to book tours.

There is also a garden maintained by Brecknock School, and the Blooming Gardeners Age UK community garden.

The park is located between York Way to the west and Caledonian Road to the east, with Market Road and tennis and football sports facilities to the south, and North Road, you've guessed it, to the north. It is served by several bus routes including the 274 and the 393. The nearest Underground station is Caledonian Road on the Picadilly Line.

The park is also popular with walkers and runners. The circuit around the park has been measured at 604 metres.

Responsible dog-walkers are welcome, remember to bag and bin any mess.
