Gillespie Park, Mosaic on Seven Sisters Road, Finsbury Park

Opposite Finsbury Park Station, on Seven Sister's Road, a mosaic plaque marks the entrance to Gillepie Park: 'A Hidden Oasis in Finsbury park'..

At the top of the steps, after following the path by the railway, there is a gate to the left. This leads to peaceful wooded areas with shaded pathways, meadows and lily ponds.

Gillespie Park is a lovely tranquil place. There are lots of places to expore, or sit quietly for a while. It is hard to believe you are so close to the urban buzz of Finsbury Park.

The park is a nature reserve, home to over 200 species of plants, more than 90 different birds and many types of butterflies and other insects.

There are more photos in my Gillespie Park Facebook Gallery.
