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.

The Wildlife Trail
The Wildlife Trail is a small feature site at the Highgate End. It is now open to the public between 9.00am and 6.00pm. Click on the Wildlife Trail link in the main menu to see more on this exciting project.

Our Volunteers
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.


Conservation Days and Litter Picks 

Volunteering activities are on hold during the Coronovirus restrictions.

Litter picks are organised as volunteer events or you can become a 'Litter Marshal'. Litter marshals generally commit to carrying out a litter pick each week. If you wish to become a litter marshal please view our volunteering page and contact us so we can help you get set up.
