The London Borough of Harrow is one of the northern outer London boroughs: as such much of the Green Belt land is within the Borough boundaries. Parks and open spaces range from the large area around Harrow-on-the-Hill to the smaller gardens and recreation grounds; there are also a number of spaces taken up with golf courses . It has been suggested that Harrow is continuously losing its green space and trees.[1]

The main areas of open space are:

  • Bentley Priory, Stanmore: 165 acres (66ha) open space; Site of Special Scientific Interest
  • Canons Park: 45 acres (18ha) 18th century parkland
  • Grimsdyke Open space and the adjoining Harrow Weald Common: total 57 acres (22.8ha)
  • Headstone Manor Recreation Park: 57 acres (230,000 m2) including the Museum and Headstone Manor & Bessborough Cricket Club
  • Pinner Park Farm tenant dairy farmers Hall & Sons: total 230 acres (0.93 km2)
  • Stanmore Common: 120 acres (48ha)
  • Stanmore Country Park: 77.5 acres (31ha)
