Browsing the Haringey Council website (as you do), I noticed a listing of the Top 10 things to do in Haringey.
While I wouldn't necessarily disagree with the choice (despite a controversial entry for Finsbury Park), what would you add to the list?
Although I'll be fascinated to hear what you have to say, Haringey is also interested, here's what they say:
Do you think we’ve got it right? If not, let us know. Tweet us your recommendations and you might see it end up on the list.
Don’t forget to add #Haringeytop10 when you make you suggestions.

They say that there is a deer enclosure at Ally Pally.
There might be an enclosure but I think the deer have been relocated to Devon.
It's possible that the council just have no ideer.
Fried Chicken at Chick King has to be one of the best things to experience in Haringey.
Also a kebab from King Kebabs. The same guy has been making them for fifteen years. He knows what he is doing.
Not just the parks and woods but mention Liz, but the paths which connect them - Parkland Walk South between Finsbury Park and Queens Wood, Parkland Walk North between Highgate Wood and Alexandra Park. The New River Path. The River Lea Navigation towpath (I think is still in Haringey?).
For the motorist, Wightman Road is always worth a visit - perhaps unique in London, this is almost one mile of road uninterrupted by signal-controlled junctions, with nearly 20 rat-running opportunities if it ever gets busy!

Yes, perhaps when the latest works are complete we should ask for Wightman Rd to be recognised as a heritage site of some kind. Future generations can wonder at how things used to be when 'the motor car was king'. How despite mounting evidence about the impact of pollution on health, of the lack of exercise on health, on the benefits of cycling and walking - Haringey council still went ahead with an expensive road management scheme that aimed to actually increase traffic flow along a residential road and to increase rat running through a highly residential area with two large primary schools. In 2019.
People got to get to where they want to go. Every street in Harringey is residential to some degree, although there a few industrial sites up near the recycling station. The only residents there are foxes and pigeons.
Yep, Parkland Walk, Queens Wood & Lordship Rec for me.
And a special mention for the model traffic area in the latter.
Found the list as I was interested to know what they included
Thanks Lisa, there’s also a link in the original post but I’ve made the font bigger based on this feedback.
Ah, clearly I can't read today!
