Fryent Country Park consists of 250 acres of unspoilt countryside amidst the suburbs of Brent, and offers visitors the chance to step back to a time before Brent became a built up area in the late 1800s.
The park consists of meadows, ponds, lakes, hedges and woodland, and is popular with ramblers and nature enthusiasts. The area is a designated nature reserve, and is used by conservation groups. Over 800 species of wildlife live here, amongst them 21 types of butterfly and 80 birds. The meadows are still cut for hay once a year in July, before being transported to a farm. In the past, sheep and cattle would roam freely over the green space.
The park is open to everyone for recreational purposes, and there is also a small area for ponies to graze on as there are stables nearby. There is a car park with space for approximately 50 vehicles.
