About the Walk
Enjoy a gentle stroll around Cally Park with Bob Gilbert from The Garden Classroom. This walk will look at some of the trees of Caledonian Park. It will look at how to recognise them, how they got their names and how they came to be here. Most of all, however, it will reveal their secret stories; the connection between the lime and love, the magical powers of the ash, why the poplar is always trembling, and how conkers won the First World War.’
About Caledonian Park
The history of Caledonian (Cally) Park and the local area extends beyond the iconic clock tower itself. The park and local area hide many clues to the history of the cattle market and the subsequent “Cally” market. We are Islington’s second largest park and an important hub for nature in the borough.
