Barbecues in the Park - new zones introduced

STOP PRESS! Two barbecue zones in the south and west of the park from 1 July

Camden Council allows barbecues in Waterlow Park but there are now restrictions on which area you can use [click here].  There is information displayed on noticeboards and clear guidelines about using barbecues.  The main points to remember are

  • Use BBQs safely and responsibly - not disposable ones which burn the grass! The barbecue should be raised off the ground.
  • Be considerate to other people using the park or living nearby
  • Take care not to damage the environment
  • Dispose of all litter properly and recycle your rubbish where possible or take it home!
  • Keep children, pets, games and sports well away from the BBQ
  • Take some water to put out the BBQ
  • More information about the guidelines can be found here. Remember that you need permission to hold large events (over 20 people)

Thank you and enjoy the Park!

Coming soon - Petanque pitch in preparation
After almost three years of discussion and consultation with members, we are now about to build a pétanque or boules pitch below the tennis courts. The work for this is scheduled to start soon and should be completed this month.
 
The two pitches will be free to use. There will also be one or two boules sets kept in the tennis court booth and times will be posted there when we hope a pétanque expert will be on hand to tutor those not already familiar with the sport.
Schoolchildren picturing the future in the Park
Local schoolchildren were inspired by the park to create wonderful pictures about the likely effects of climate change.  The Friends of Waterlow Park displayed over 100 artworks from all six local primary schools during the Highgate Festival [14-21 June].  Each school was given a theme to explore -  oceans [Brookfield], animal life [Channing/Fairseat], water [St Michaels], food [St Josephs], weather extremes [Highgate Junior] and people [Highgate Primary].
