Welcome to the Friends of the Parkland Walk
The Parkland Walk is the longest Linear Nature Reserve in London at 4km in length, and follows the former railway line connecting Finsbury Park to Alexandra Palace which opened in 1873. Its fame is now global as it often features on 'must do' lists for visitors from oversees. At times it can be quite busy and weekends bring walkers, dog walkers, runners and cyclists all out to take advantage of the weather and escape from the urban hullabaloo.
We have a small but dedicated group of volunteers who come out to help us maintain and improve the ecology of the Walk. It's a big task that could benefit from more hands and we always welcome anyone who can help in any capacity. No knowledge of conservation is required, just the desire to want to help make The Parkland Walk a better place for everyone. Volunteering is a great way to make new friends, improve your health and fitness and also learn about the natural world.
