Welcome to the official Friends of Fairland Park community website.

The park is located between Falkland & Fairfax Roads in N8, London. In 2008 local school children chose Fairland Park as the new name for the space.

This website provides information about the park including some recent history, info about community events as well as any activities organised by the Friends of Fairland Park.
Park Facilities

Fun Fair

In 2010 our new park was opened after a wonderful redevelopment! The park has become an excellent focus for our community ever since.
Fairland Park, as it is known today, used to be terraced housing. In World War II this area was hit by a V1 bomb, destroying 30 homes. After the war a number of prefabricated homes were installed. They had their own gardens and section of land. By the late 1970s the council had re-housed people living in the prefabs. Jeremy Corbyn, then a local councillor, was part of a campaign to turn this area into a park. A consultation with local people was held at what is today North Harringay Primary. A new park was born in the 1982/83. The park was well known by local parents & children for the ‘Log Cabins’. An after school club and playgroup ran here for many years. The building was pulled down in May 2007 because it was unsafe.
