Coram's Fields is a unique seven acre playground and park for children and young people living in or visiting London.
It includes a Youth Centre, Children's Centre, Community Nursery, Sports Programme, a city farm and a cafe which is open from March until October.
The park is open all year round from 9am until dusk and is free and open to children and young people under 16. No adult can enter Coram's Fields without a child and our friendly on-site staff ensure that everyone can enjoy their visit. You can find Coram's Fields in the heart of London between King's Cross and Holborn.
Coram's Fields is a charity and we can only offer wonderful activities for children and young people as a result of donations and fundraising activities. Entrance to the park is free and all activities provided by the Youth Centre, Children's Centre and Sports Programme are FREE OF CHARGE.
Please note that Coram's Fields is not part of the Coram group of charities which includes the Thomas Coram Centre.

This is a really exciting opportunity to join the Board of Coram's Fields and to help shape the future direction of the charity.
Coram's Fields now seeks to appoint up to 4 individuals with experience of one or more of the following; strategic planning, HR, project management, land management, fundraising, or in historical interpretation to help us communicate the historical significance of the site.
You may have seen a very alarming online petition claiming that “Corams is increasingly renting all of its facilities to adults, completely disregarding the needs of children… that children and youngsters are effectively turned away - and adults are playing instead of them!!”
On behalf of the Trustees I’d just like to clarify that this is completely inaccurate and untrue. Please be assured that our Trustees and staff are fully committed and working very hard to maintain the Coram’s Fields legacy as a haven for play for children.
We have been working in partnership with Farrer Huxley Associates and Birds Portchmouth Russum Architects to develop a Master Plan for Coram's Fields.
You can see an illustration of the wonderful plans using the link below. The plans include new sports courts, a rockery adventure area, water play fountains, a welcome pavilion and the relocation of the cafe to the Harmsworth Memorial Pavilion.
