The second on open areas in N3 is a quiet square not too far from the Pentland tower in Squires Lane.
This is a well guarded secret in Finchley.
If you walk down Station Road, and cross over Manor View (continuation of Squires Lane) into Rosemary Avenue, and take the first right into Dudley Road and walk down towards Briarfield Avenue, half way down on the left you will come across a little alleyway pointing to the West Finchley Bowling Club.
Why it is called that when it is so far from West Finchley I have no idea, but I digress. Most people will pass the alleyway by, thinking it is part of the bowling club, but it isn’t. Walk down it, pass the bowling club and you will come into a beautiful square.
If you live in the area, this is a lovely place to have a picnic on a hot summers day.
