Great parks in Camden
The Grange first opened in 1913. The land was previously part of the Grange estate, after which it was named.
Kilburn Grange is a large park that is just behind the shops on Kilburn High Road. Due to its size there are a several different areas within the park. The newly re-furbished playground has found favour with the children who visit.
The three tennis courts are well booked up in the summer, whilst the multi-sports pitch is used all year round. Find out more about booking a tennis court
For those looking for a quiet corner to contemplate or relax, the rose gardens provide just such a space and are surrounded by a good range of mature trees, including a high proportion of native species, such as silver birch (Betula pendula), hornbeam (Carpinus betulus), ash (Fraxinus excelsior), yew (Taxus baccata), holly (Ilex aquilifolium) and sessile oak (Quercus petraea).
The trees and shrubs provide nesting habitat for a range of common birds.
Thanks to our commitment to nature conservation an area has been set aside for wildlife to inhabit without interruption. Native grasses and herbs have been allowed to grow, including meadow barley (Hordeum secalinum), round-leaved crane's-bill (Geranium rotundifolium) and small-flowered crane's bill (G. pusillum). The latter two species are scarce in London.
In 2010 a new natural play has been added to improve the play facilities for young people. The play service also run special events from the building in this adventure playground.
