Fairland Park, as it is known today, used to be terraced housing. In World War II this area was hit by a V1 bomb, destroying 30 homes. After the war a number of prefabricated homes were installed. They had their own gardens and section of land. By the late 1970s the council had re-housed people living in the prefabs. Jeremy Corbyn, then a local councillor, was part of a campaign to turn this area into a park. A consultation with local people was held at what is today North Harringay Primary. A new park was born in the 1982/83. The park was well known by local parents & children for the ‘Log Cabins’. An after school club and playgroup ran here for many years. The building was pulled down in May 2007 because it was unsafe.
