Clitterhouse Recreation Ground or Clitterhouse Playing Fields is a park and Site of Local Importance for Nature Conservation[1] in Brent Cross in the London Borough of Barnet.[2] It is a large area of mown grass with a children's playground, bordered by thick hedges. Clitterhouse Stream (or Clitterhouse Brook), a tributary of the River Brent, runs along its eastern border.

The £4.5 billion Brent Cross Cricklewood development includes spending several million pounds on improving the park, including extensive landscaping, sports facilities and a nature park.[3][4][5]

There is access to the park from Claremont Road, Prayle Grove, Purbeck Drive, Hendon Way, and by a subway from Ridge Hill.
