Northfields boasts two large green spaces, Lammas Park and Walpole Park. Lammas Park is a 25 acre park which is very popular with runners, walkers and those looking to relax. Its name derives from lammas: land on which manor tenants could graze cattle after a harvest in medieval times. Lammas Park consists of two areas, the Northern side has paths, trees, shrubs, a nature area, bowling green, croquet pitch, tennis courts and a young children’s play area. The southern side is much more open, with lots of space for football pitches and another playground. Walpole Park is the other lovely park in Northfields and is just across the road from Lammas Park. It has a play area for young children and hosts the Ealing Summer Festival, offering a variety of world music and comedy, attracting many visitors not just from the local area but from surrounding towns and boroughs.
