Barbecues in spring and summer 2022

Camden Council are reintroducing BBQs in the Park from 11 April to 20 September. Barbecues are only allowed in two strictly limited areas in the west and south of the park, easily reached from the Swains Lane Entrance.  These are marked on the map.

BBQs must be extinguished by 7pm

Please BBQ responsibly

BBQs can cause problems for the park environment and other users so Camden has set some important rules you should follow so that the park is protected and as many people as possible can continue to enjoy this precious green space. 

In particular,  please:

  • do not damage the grass (‘disposable’ BBQs are banned)  
  • be considerate of other park users
  • clear up safely using ash bins for ash only.
  • take all rubbish home


The Park has remained open throughout the pandemic thanks to the hard work of Camden, the idverde gardeners, and the active community of Friends. This is your park and your considerate use of the space and respect for others are more important now than ever. Please, if you have not already joined us, become a Friend. Your support is vital.
