Bowes Park is a great spot to live for people who want a leafy, quiet neighborhood. It's a place of respite within the big city, complete with a river and towering trees. It tends to be a pricier than neighboring areas thanks to the sheer size of the homes. In general, the area feels just like any typical neighborhood. You’ll find shops, restaurants, and activities to do on the weekends.
Bowes Park is bordered on the north and east by Palmers Green, on the south by Wood Green, and on the west by Bounds Green.
