About Wembley Park

Already home to the OVO Arena Wembley, Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre and Wembley Stadium, the Wembley Park district is building on its international reputation for music and sporting events and becoming a destination in its own right.

As a neighbourhood, Wembley Park includes more than 4,700 new homes, shops, and places to work, as well as attractive public spaces, with parks and gardens, public squares and wide boulevards for locals and visitors alike to enjoy. When completed, nearly half of the 85-acre site will be open space and private gardens and Wembley Park will be home to the largest single site of Build to Rent in the UK, with more than 6,000 homes, all managed by Quintain Living.

The three-acre southern section of what will be the seven-acre Union Park is the latest milestone in the transformation of Wembley Park, including brand new amenities such as a children’s paddling pool, a playground, a pond, new trees, and expansive lawns, as well as outdoor training equipment.

Wembley Park is also home to shops, hotels, restaurants, The White Horse pub by Fuller’s, Black Sheep Coffee, Bread Ahead, Chop-Chop London, Out of Office Coffee, Studio 5ive and MoreYoga.
