Six parks perfect for sports & fitness in Brent

Here are six parks in the London Borough of Brent which you should check out for sports and fitness activities:

Alperton Sports Ground

Alperton Lane, Wembley, HAO 1JH

Alperton Sports Ground has a football pitch, a multi-use games area for basketball etc, and tennis courts.

Barnhill/Chalkhill Open Space

This piece of land has been converted into a BMX and cycle track. London needs more BMX tracks like this, and there’s so much wasteland in London ripe for development into outdoor sports and fitness spaces.

Chalkhill Park

Chalkhill Road HA9

There’s an outdoor gym, and personal trainers available for PT sessions on Thursdays 2-3pm, weather permitting.

GEC Sports Ground

Preston Road, HA9 8FB

This large open space has football pitches and Gaelic football pitches.

Queens Park

Harvist Road, London NW6

Queens Park should win the prize for most beautiful park in Brent, with its 30 acres of immaculate lawns and trees. In this now very sought-after neighbourhood, Queens Park boasts a bowling green, pitch & putt golf, and 6 well-maintained hard tennis courts with tennis coaches.

The paths through this park are ideal for jogging.

Gladstone Park

Dollis Hill Lane, London NW2

This is probably the best park in Brent for sports & fitness. Named after the 19th Century Liberal prime minister, Gladstone Park has a long history, and continues to grow in facilities. Here’s what it has to offer:

Artificial cricket pitch
Multi-use games area
Football pitches
Rugby pitches
Netball courts
