Cute little park with lots of open spaces to play frisbee or catch with your pooch. If you don't mind crowds, I recommend going on a Saturday and walking around Broadway Market before exploring the park. 

It is not ideal for picnics as the field is well trotted upon and a bit muddy. (And there are not a lot of trees/shady areas)

Park is especially good for biking because it has clear pedestrian/biking lanes.

lovely little park, in the summer has a beautiful preserved meadow in the centre, dog walkers, playground and outdoor swimming pool, ping pong table, and it connects broadway market to richmond road, both areas full of independent shops and restaurants.


The only place in London you can legally BBQ. This is my second home in the summer.


What you would call an urban park. Certainly not for everyone but if you're up for a bit of mad drunken fun London Fields is calling. Grab yourself some picnic food and cold drinks and you've got a recipe for a good time. If London Fields is Alice and Wonderland, the BBQ section is the Mad Hatters tea party. You're bound to meet characters from every scale of the spectrum. The fun loving culture of East London really comes together in this park and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone not looking to take the day too seriously.

I was here the other day when the heat was pretty searing, and although I love the BBQ policy, it does attract a pretty boozed up, rowdy crowd. As long as you know what the vibe is here, you'll have fun. Just know it is pretty much London's prime party park. Oi oi!

Maybe not the most manicured park in town, but it has gritty charm for days. There's a lovely wildflower meadow in the spring and summer, plus a permanent ping pong table and barbecue pitches that get crowded pretty swiftly in the warmer months. For kids there are two playgrounds, with all manner of equipment that, quite unusually, caters for a range of ages from toddler upwards. Plus of course London Fields Lido (perfect for a pre-work dip), and (not as well known), a smaller paddling pool that's free to use located behind it. It's partially shaded so perfect for spending several hours at – grab a posh picnic from Broadway Market down the opposite end of London Fields, or some top-notch bread and cakes from E5 Bakehouse by London Fields rail station, and make a day of it.
