The Camley Street Natural Park is located close to King’s Cross Station. I happened to spot a sign for it when I was in the area, and decided to take a look.
The park was created in an old railway coal yard which was saved from redevelopment in the 1980s.
The park has a visitor centre with toilets. In Summer, there’s an outdoor cafe
I liked the art on the exterior of the visitor centre. There was a ladybird.
It looked as though the bee’s wings were made from honeycombs.
One side of the Camley Street Natural Park is bordered by Regent’s Canal.
There’s a ‘Floating Forest’ garden on an old barge moored in the park.
There are a couple of ponds in the park.
There was a pretty blue and purple feathered moorhen with a red beak wandering around.
It was early Spring during my visit, so everything was a bit barren, and it was too cold to sit on the benches.
The park is close to the rail tracks, which is reflected in the train mural.
There’s an ‘Outdoor Living’ area which looked as though it could cater for a large party.
The Camley Street Nature Park is open daily from 10am to dusk, or 5pm, whichever is earlier.
