Four days of Fun at Claremont Park

June 8, 2022

Today (Thursday 9 June) marks another milestone in the delivery of the Brent Cross Cricklewood regeneration programme, as we officially open Claremont Park at Brent Cross Town.

As part of Barnet’s new park town, we’re delivering facilities that the community can enjoy first. One of seven new and improved parks planned for Brent Cross Town, Claremont Park has been designed to be a neighbourhood park that will provide a space for families and local residents to relax and socialise, to play and enjoy nature.

There are some exciting new features that we invite you to explore, including a new pond, a nature-inspired play park, a sports zone and 300 new trees which have been planted alongside wildflower meadows.

A new locally run kiosk is also opening in Claremont Park. Run by local resident, Gus Bodur, Gussy’s Ice Cream Parlour will serve hot drinks, fruit, pastries and sandwiches. Gus and his family live locally on Clitterhouse Road and are well known for their ice-cream in the Northwest London community.

To celebrate, there is an exciting programme of free events for the whole family taking place from 12pm on Thursday 9 June to 5pm on Sunday 12 June. From skateboarding to scavenger’s hunts, live music, art workshops, face painting and more, there’s something for everyone.
