A new park is set to open in Hornsey as part of a 12-acre housing development.
Hornsey Park will open on November 23 just north of Hornsey station as part of the Clarendon project by the developer St William.
More than 1,700 homes will be built, 605 of them “affordable” by government calculations. They are priced between £404,790 to £768,000.
The first stage of the development, Hornsey Park Place, is due to finish by the end of June.
Hornsey councillors snipped the ribbon on the park last Thursday (October 29) including the environment chief Cllr Kirsten Hearn and the mayor Cllr Adam Jogee.
Cllr Hearn said: “Our parks have been a real lifeline to residents during the ongoing pandemic, allowing them to relax and unwind outdoors when we’re increasingly finding ourselves spending more time inside.
“I feel sure Hornsey Park will serve that invaluable purpose to its local communities in the months and years to come.”
