Take our snapshot survey and tell us what you think about Queen's Park.

New woolly residents

Queen's Park Farm is now home to two Ouessant Sheep - the smallest breed of sheep in the world. Dexter (white in colour) and Deejay (black) are available to visit on the farm from 11am every day.

Queen's Park Café

The Queen’s Park Café will be managed on a short term basis by Hoxton Beach. Patrick and Emma welcome you to join them in the café for some fresh, affordable, delicious food and drinks.

A tender process closed on the 12 November and bids are being evaluated for the café. It is planned that a new lease and tenant will be in situ by 13 January 2018.

In the meantime, please continue to enjoy the café and the delicious food and drinks available from Hoxton Beach.

Oak Processionary Moth

Oak Processionary Moth has been identified as having potential to be found within Queen's Park, and the species' caterpillars represent a hazard to visitors as their hairs cause severe rashes.

These caterpillars are most active in spring and summer and are found almost exclusively in oak trees. They are best recognised by their long hairs, tendency to move together in nose-to-tail processions, and the trails of white webbing they leave in trees.

It is important for the public, and their pets, not to touch or approach any nests or caterpillars and, if found, to alert Heath staff on 020 7332 3322 and to then alert the Forestry Commission.
