Nice time in the summer playing football in Finsbury Park. The park itself was not too overcrowded being the 3rd hot day of the year and had enough space to play ball. Plenty of other people with bbqs which we will return for next time.

One of London's premier "event" parks. Wireless music festival for music lovers in July, and Zippos Circus for families in September.Large and lovely park for the rest of the year. Coffee shop and boating lake always worth a visit.

Finsbury Park has a few recreational facilities and there plenty of practicing teams all over the place but it’s underwhelming. There are large trees but there’s excessive empty spaces. If you’re in the area, you should go to Clissold Park. It’s not far from Finsbury...More

The park offers a nice space for people. We saw people use the area for walking, jogging, cycling, playing with their children and generally relaxing. The downside is that the area is obviously used by some who leave litter, especially empty bottles and cans. Where...More

A pleasant open space. I hadn't realised there was a boating lake here and even a very small art gallery.
