Great parks in Camden
Brunswick Square Gardens
Brunswick Square, along with Mecklenburgh Square, was built as part of the recreation grounds of the Foundling Hospital - an orphanage founded by the distinguished seaman Captain Thomas Coram in 1739.
In close proximity to the Brunswick Centre, it provides a quiet escape from the hussle and bustle of nearby Russell Square. Just around the corner is Coram’s Fields, a separately run children-orientated play area.
Near the centre of the garden is the finest example of a London plane tree to be found anywhere in Camden. It is listed as a 'Great Tree of London' by the charity Trees for Cities.
