My husband has been an Arsenal fan since he was 6 (he's now 51) and did the weekly trek to the Highbury Stadium and now the Emirates Stadium, and walked past the entrances to Gillespie Park either off of Gillespie Road or Drayton Park for every home match. It wasn't until we moved into the area a few years ago that we explored the "doorway" off of Gillespie Road and found an unbelievably beautiful oasis on our doorstep. We walk through at every opportunity on the weekend as it is a great cut through to Finsbury Park, but also just a lovely, tranquil environment after the hub bub of Central London. The Wildlife is evident - yesterday a robin followed us along the path and a squirrel up to mischief in the trees above us. Just lovely

I came here about a year ago and thought I spotted a pair of Lesser Spotted Woodpeckers so I thought I would revisit for a longer look. No Woodpeckers this time but I had a longer walk through. The paths are well kept and there are great information boards plus lots of varied habitats. Unfortunately the Eco Centre was closed.

1* for the path by the train tracks and 3* for the beautiful hidden section near the ecology cafe with two ponds and a little forest. I walk past an entrance to this park every day to get to Arsenal tube. Seeing as I've lived in this area now for over a year, a sunny Sunday walking back from Finsbury Park seemed the perfect opportunity to visit. We went via the Finsbury Park entrance, the northern tip of it. The first few minutes were... Underwhelming. Some graffiti, a bleak view of the train tracks and a few weeds were all I could see. Then, we came to a clearing and it started to become less 'abandoned alleyway' and more 'awesome green space'! Walking past the wind turbine, we were greeted with a blue ecology house with a cafe and two ponds nearby. The children in the park were having a delightful time spotting wildlife and running about through the small forest area. Other than about 20 people this oasis in the city is practically empty, so is well worth going if you want a few minutes of solitude amid London life.

30 seconds from busy urban to tranquil woods ... quirky London ... one of the reasons I love it! Late July there was a patch of lovely orchids next to the trail near the train tracks. Great little local nature respite.
