Parks & open spaces

Whether you’re looking for a quiet moment in the park, a performance in the square or a playground for the kids, you’ll find it at King’s Cross.

The area is being transformed from an under-used industrial wasteland into a vibrant part of the city with a whole 26 acres of new parks, squares and open space. Many of these new parks and gardens are already here, with more to come! Here are some of the highlights.


“What was a once a vast forest of cranes and concrete has, by some mysterious urban pupation, recently turned into one of London’s most lovely piazzas. It takes the name of Granary Square.”Amol Rajan The Independent
