The London Borough of Haringey maintains 600 acres (240ha) of parks and open spaces within its boundaries. These range in size from Finsbury Park to a number of playgrounds and sports fields. Alexandra Park, the area surrounding Alexandra Palace, is also located here.

Lordship Recreation Ground is one of 11 parks throughout Greater London chosen to receive money for redevelopment by a public vote. The recreation ground received £400,000 towards better footpaths, more lighting, refurbished public toilets and new play areas for children.[1]

Until their disbandment in April 2009, the parks were patrolled by the Haringey Parks Constabulary.

As of 2011, a partial list of parks and open spaces in Haringey was as follows:

Haringey Council also contributes to the upkeep of Lee Valley Park.
