well being

There are over 50 different park areas within the borough of Harrow, spread throughout the area. In addition to the many playgrounds offered, the parks are set up for a range of recreational activities including walking and cycling, tennis, football, rugby, and bowls.

In addition, being near the edge of greater london, Harrow is within easy access of a wide variety of open spaces, including fields, woodlands, country clubs, and golf courses.

The London loop is a 224km path, primarily through fields and parks, that circuits london, is suitable for walkers and cyclists, and was recently extended to Harrow. david sharp has written a useful book, called The London Loop, which describes the path in its entirety and includes suggestions for half-day and full-day walks, and is available at a discounted price through amazon.

At the local bookstores, you may be able to find this book, as well as many other books describing the wide variety of walks available in the area. whsmith in st. george's centre has a good selection of books on local walks, and local history.
