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 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.
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.
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
Outdoor gym, perfect for personal training sessions
