The other reviewers have got it exactly right: this isn't a place you'd venture from miles away to visit, but as a local space for local people, you could do much worse.
Gorgeously green and only five minutes easy ambling distance from Ladywell station, Hilly Fields is ideal for dog-walkers, tennis players, and fitness fanatics (they have Military Fitness sessions here rain or shine, coincide an evening stroll with one for free entertainment, or sign yourself up if you're a wobbly-bodied masochist).
Lovely in the sunshine and the hot place for sledding action in the recent snow deluge, there's even sometimes outdoor theatre and other entertainment here in the summer. And with its steep hills you can see for miles, so remember it for Bonfire Night!
This is a nice spot for the local residents. As a previous reviewer said, you wouldn't travel long distances to visit Hilly Fields, but it is an asset for the local community. It is peaceful and a lovely sanctuary to go to on a warm summer's day from the hustle and bustle of day-to-day life. The Hills are quite high and steep so you do get good views of London on a clear day.
Hilly Fields, To those that don’t know then read Henry Williamson. He was born there, read 'The Dark Lantern’ the first of his 15 vols called 'The Chronical of ancient sunlight’ the library will have all 15 vols, beautiful descriptions of the Hilly fields from 1895 to the beginning of WW1.
The most detailed descriptions of life at those times of the whole area.
Tucked between Brockley and Ladywell in South East London this park is a great place for locals to come and relax on a hot Summer’s day.
As the name suggests it’s not the flatest of spaces but it is definitely a large enough space of green to escape the urban sprawls of surrounding Lewisham, New Cross, Catford et al.
Great for an evening stroll, a Summer picnic or just if your craving a nice view. You can see for miles from it’s highest point.
A good place for locals, but as the previous reviewer noted possibly not the most notable of areas if you’re a tourist..
I love this place in the summer. A haven of greenery nestling on the edge of the urban hives of New Cross and Lewisham. A playground and swings for the kids if you have them, and a set of tennis courts should you feel the urge. There are great views of Canary Wharf on a clear day and an amble around the small stone circle is a must. I prefer to just lie back and read in the sun though.
I wouldn’t travel miles to see it but if you’re in the area I’d recommend a visit on a sunny day.
