Lewis Cubitt Park

A beautiful green space in Kings Cross

Just off Handyside Street is Lewis Cubitt Park, the principal green space at Kings Cross. Surrounded by trees, this is a great place to relax, for a picnic, or for children to run and play.

The park is a much-needed swathe of green in this very urban part of London. Gently mounded lawns flow through the park, subtly dividing it into smaller spaces.

The park is designed by Townsend Landscape Architects, who took inspiration from the relaxed grassy lawns of London’s garden squares, such as those in Bloomsbury. Whilst harking back to a traditional design it is also brought up to date, creating a more open and accessible space by removing the railings that would traditionally enclose these areas.

The moulded lawn, trees and specimen shrubs gently demarcate the space, whilst also leaving space for play and games.


Soft Play in Cubitt Park, King's Cross

In the summer months, look out for the brightly-coloured SNUG soft play area. Designed to feed big imaginations, the soft play equipment consists of giant pieces of ‘kit’, which children can join together in a variety of shapes to create tunnels, trampolines, obstacle courses and more.
