About Park Group
Located just off the busy and bustling road of Green Lanes, behind magnificent iron gates lies one of Haringey’s most hidden and wonderful treasures. The two-acre Green Flag award site of Railway Fields is one of three Local Nature Reserves in Haringey. In the 1950s the site was used as a railway goods yard and even today coal can still be found on site.

The council acquired the land in the early 1980s and in 1986 turned the site into a wildlife haven and environmental teaching centre for local schools. In 1990 Railway Fields was officially declared a statutory Local Nature Reserve. The site is currently managed by conservation charity The Conservation Volunteers (TCV).

Fun Fair

Railway Fields Nature Reserve is a focal point for our London activities. In partnership with Haringey Council, local businesses and communities we develop the site to make it the fantastic green space that it is. We are well used by local residents, walkers, families, school groups and people who just want to have some lunch away from the hustle and bustle.
Railway Fields Nature Reserve is in the heart of Haringey, North London, where it offers a piece of tranquillity away from busy Green Lanes. This former disused railway goods yard now boasts a Green Flag award for environmental quality. Lush vegetation blocks out noise from surrounding streets, and 21 kinds of butterfly have been recorded as well as more than 60 species of birds. Railway Fields offers a safe and fun place to explore and get in touch with the natural world. It is a firm favourite with local children.
