Shoreditch Park Playground

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.

Address: New North Road, N1 6TA

Playground Review

Cleanliness 4 / 5
equipment 4 / 5
health and safety 5 / 5
picnic area 5 / 5
toilets 0 / 5

This playground is quite large, clean and spaced out.

The equipment is ok with a choice of climbing frames for toddlers and older children with slides, a big sandpit with hammocks, big swings and baby swings, a spinning cup thing, a couple of spring rocker things.

The playground did not have much rubbish dotted around and seemed rather clean.

There is plenty of seating in and out of the shade also picnic tables/benches or on the grass.

There are no toilets in the playground.

Xavier’s Review

He had a very good time and said that the playground was “good for him and wants to come back”.
