See & Do
Victoria Park is probably Hackney's biggest park, stretching along side the Regent's Canal and Limehouse Cut, right up to the Olympic Park site, south in to nearly Bethnal Green and East into Bow. As well as Victoria Park, there are also plenty of other green spaces in Hackney too. Clissold Park has a lovely old house to visit and deer and other play activities for children. Springfield Park, Hackney Downs, Hackney Marshes, Haggerston Park and London Fields are other big green spaces in Hackney too. Many of them are connected by nice quite road cycle routes, or the Regent's Canal which will then take you north west to Islington, Camden and beyond or South East to Bow, Limehouse and the Docklands. The Olympic Park site, once the Olympics are over will also be a new green space for Hackney and the other adjoining boroughs, with promised cycle routes, and recreation areas for all.
