The Parkland Walk is the disused track of the former Finsbury Park to Alexandra Palace Railway. In 1990 it was declared a Local Nature Reserve and laid out as a public walk, with former railway structures still visible.

The first section of the line was in use by 1867, with the final section completed by 1873. Use of the line diminished by the 1920s and the last passenger train ran in 1954, with the tracks finally lifted in 1971.
