London Fields is an extremely popular summer picnic spot for the borough's hipsters, as well as its dog lovers, cyclists, and many young families.

Also home to a long-running community cricket club, the park teems with laid back leisure activities throughout the year. 

It has an outdoor gym, two table tennis tables, pétanque area, a basketball court, two tennis courts, two children's play areas, a paddling pool, sports changing rooms and accessible toilets. 

The park is also home to the celebrated London Fields Lido, a 50 metre heated outdoor pool, which has a cute little cafe adjoining the building.

Historically classified as common land, it was used by drovers to graze animals on route to Smithfields Market. 

In 2011, London Fields won a Green Flag, the Keep Britain Tidy award that recognises the country's best green spaces, which it retains to this day. It also has a wildflower meadow which provides a rich habitat for butterflies and bees, its perennial grass and flower mix re-grows every spring and you can expect colourful blooms from June until October. 

On a hot summer's day, it can seem more like a festival site and visitors are asked to respect the space by only using a BBQ on a stand and in the designated area, as well as disposing of any picnic waste rather than littering.
