Great parks in Camden

Talacre Gardens


This large open space is between Chalk Farm to the west and Kentish Town to the east. It was redesigned in 2003 following the development of Talacre Community Sports Centre

Separate areas in the park provide an all weather pitch, a children’s playground, planted seating, a wide expanse of grass, pathways, benches and space outside the park for dog exercising.

The gardens provide an ideal space for community activities and events at all times of the year. There is an active friends group representing the interests of park users.

Natural play area

Talacre holds a Green Flag award.

Natural play area

A natural play area opened in April 2009 as part of the Play Pathfinder project.
The design was inspired by former local piano and organ industries. It includes a winding decked path of reclaimed timber which mimics oversize piano keys. Fruit bushes will encourage healthy, natural eating and teach children where food comes from.
