London Fields Park

London Fields is a popular 31-acre park located in Hackney. It has large green spaces surrounded by trees and a beautiful Wildflower meadow home to bees and butterflies. The park has great facilities like tennis courts, a cricket pitch, 2 play areas and a summer paddling pool!


The park has a couple of play areas with slides, one for toddlers and one for older children. The first one has a climbing frame with a slide and four baby swings as well as other features like a tunnel and rocking horse. The other one also has swings, slides, and climbing frames. Children can have lots of fun exploring these two playgrounds. The paddling pool open during the summer is the perfect opportunity for adventurous water play!

Food & Drink

The Lido cafe is a great spot to grab a hot drink like a cup of coffee or a variety of refreshments as well as delicious treats like fresh cakes. There is also a designated barbecue area which would be lovely on a hot summer's day to have your own picnic with the family!
