Fryent Country Park
Explore 103 hectares (254 acres) of rolling fields, hills and woodland in this country park and nature reserve in the London Borough of Brent. The walk starts in the car park at the eastern end of the park and follows footpaths to the top of Barn Hill. At the top of the hill there is a pond and great views towards Wembley Stadium and London. There are also two other hills with viewpoints, several other ponds and grazing ponies to see in this fine open space.
Parking is available for about 50 cars but if you're coming on public transport you can catch the underground to Kingsbury Station on the Jubilee line.
If you'd like to continue your walk you can follow the Capital Ring to the nearby Brent Reservoir for waterside trails.
