Summer Activities at Brent Cross Town Parks

August 11, 2022

Summer is well underway at Brent Cross Town with exciting free events and activities to entertain our younger residents over the school holidays.  

This special summer programme kicked off on Thursday 4 August and will run to Sunday 4 September at Claremont Park and Exploratory Park. 

The Claremont Park Cabin will host a number of free events during the Summer.

Claremont Park  

Running every Thursday to Saturday, the events will be hosted from a temporary cabin located near the Brent Terrace entrance to Claremont Park.  

There are a variety of free fun sessions to take part in:  

  • Every Thursday there will be arts and craft sessions, including a workshop by Annaheartsart from 12 noon to 5pm  
  • Every Friday there will be basketball from 2pm to 4pm and sports sessions from 12 noon to 5pm  
  • Every Saturday there will be games sessions from 12 noon to 5pm  

There are also lots of different games, fancy dress and arts materials available for visitors to the park to borrow. 

Exploratory Park 

In Exploratory Park, there will be a temporary pump track. This track is designed especially for scooters, bikes, skateboards and roller-skates for our younger neighbours to practice their skills. This will be open every day for the summer holidays during the Exploratory Park opening hours.  

Places are limited and on a first come, first served basis and adults must accompany children at all times.  

Getting to our parks 

The main park entrance to Claremont Park is adjacent to Brent Cross Town’s Visitor Pavilion. We encourage all our visitors to walk, cycle or use public transport where possible. You’ll find the entrance to Exploratory Park on Claremont Way. 

Limited, new parking has been provided near Claremont Way and visitors should not park on Brent Terrace, Clitterhouse Crescent or the surrounding area.  If you have to drive please visit bxt.uk/parking before you visit to find out more.
