Well it ain't exactly Midtown...
I'm looking forward to your essay on Balham.
I spend about 30 minutes here every morning, but I can't get out of my car to enjoy the greenery.
The Northolt Park Social Club sounds like a great place:
"Northolt park social club is all ways looking for new members to join are family orientated club children are always welcome."
"New Members always welcome please just come in and speack to one of our freindly bar staff team or contact us on Tel 020 8864 8037 Between 1pm to 10.30pm"
Shame you didn't check it out.
I love that bendy picture of the station!
Blimey, only you can make that corner of Northolt sound special!!

I live just a couple of minutes walk from Alexandra Park, and it is indeed lovely. You weren't tempted by the rusting outdoor gym then?
Recently got a flyer through the door for the Spicy Night Tandoori, but have yet to sample their delights.
Northolt Park strikes me as one of those areas full of people who have come to the UK in search of a better life and are now trying to work out if they have found it.
I'm not sure if this is a new sarcastic angle, or if you're practising to become a copy writer for an estate agent.
I guess we'll find out as the days go by.
Thanks for all the entertainment, DG, I have to read it every morning, well done.
Perhaps I'm wrong, but looks like it seen better days? Maybe it in need of some "gentrification".
Or you could visit the Alexandra Park in Portsmouth. Mountbatten sports centre, complete with indoor courts, outdoor courts, pool, etc, large open space up to a paved walk along the edge of Portsmouth Harbour and round Hilsea Lines at the top of the island. Good for spotting overwintering Brent Geese as well as passing ferries and other shipping.

Scenic walk along the Lines (ignore the roar of the M27) ending up at Farlington Marshes reserve. Good for all sorts of wetland, scrub and estuary bird life, we've even had an osprey stop of on migration on autumn.

You can then walk down the eastern side of Portsea Island, down the side of Langstone Harbour, round the point at Eastney then along the Front and, eventually, via Gunwharf Keys (shopping 'experience') to Portsmouth Harbour station for your train back home.

I look forward to reading your version, DG!
I think it looks rather nice. Very good for bringing a family up I would imagine, certainly better than Bow.
That said, not really my cup of tea, especially as it looks like you can't get a cup of tea and a full English on Station Parade!
^ And what (apart from bus stops) is wrong with Bow?!
There's Harrow Borough football club around the corner if you fancy a bit of top class Ryman Premier Division sporting action. (They're at home to Dulwich Hamlet tonight, tenner to get in.)
For once, and only once, I'm pleased you got "pop up" in.
Ah yes, Harrow Borough, where most of the spectators are there for the darts! (except when they play Wealdstone!)
you overlook the cultural delights of the Asda opposite Station Parade and Northolt Library set within the swimming pool complex on the corner of Eascote Lane and Mandeville Rd
A lovely little review of where I grew up - though Northala Fields didn't exist at the time!
