Published: 22/05/2018 By Jessica Chalmers

Are you thinking of moving to Chiswick and wondering what green space it has to offer? Wonder no more! Whether you are a dog walker, outside exerciser, playground endurer, afternoon tea taker - or all of the above we have a park for you! Here are a few of our favourites:

Gunnersbury Park
Gunnersbury Park offers something special for everyone; you can feel miles from the masses in the parkland or take part in the weekly Saturday 5km ‘parkrun’. If nature is more your bag join the upcoming tree walk or simply brunch in the newly opened Benugo café, which is open daily from 8am-7pm.

Chiswick House and Gardens
We are so lucky to have Chiswick House and Gardens on our doorstep with its 65 acres of gardens, the combination of formal gardens and woodland wilderness is a wonderland for dogs and folk alike! Throughout the year there are fun activities for all the family, past events have included open air cinema, opera and theatre performances, lantern festivals, a touring ‘village green’ circus and food festivals. Not to mention the historic talks and craft activities which happen throughout the year. So head down, let your dogs have a romp, your children rummage in the sand pit, and grab a delicious slice of homemade cake for yourself from the wholesome café.

Dukes Meadows
Dukes Meadows is a riverside park purchased from the Duke of Devonshire in 1923. The park can cater to a diverse audience whatever your recreational needs. On a sunny day bring your children to the paddling pool and cool down with an ice cream from the snack kiosk. If the children tire of splashing next door is a fabulous adventure playground which was designed through the imaginations of the local children. The large meadow is great for letting your dog charge around off the lead or flying kites on a blustery day. On a Sunday between 10am-2pm head to the brilliant food market, a social enterprise set up by the wonderful Chiswick Community. The delectable market offers fabulous produce from around the country.

Acton Green Common
If you are responsible for little ones you won’t be a stranger to the playground and Chiswick has plenty on offer! Rather than list them all the mini Whitman’s have decided upon their favourite: A short stroll from Turnham Green is Acton Common Playground – a paradise for children with its giant sand pit, obstacle course, space to play football and usual fun playground paraphernalia. If the swing pushers and roundabout spinners are in need of a little pep, Lavelli Bakery opposite is on hand with a flat white and bacon bap!
