Shoreditch Park is one of the borough’s largest parks at 7.1 hectares and serves the South of Hackney. It’s well used, offers a wide variety of facilities including public art, and holds a Green Flag award – an award given annually to the best parks in the country.
There was terraced housing on the site until it suffered bomb damage during World War II. The pre-fab housing that replaced it was removed between 1964 and 1973, creating the park.
