Opportunities to run fitness sessions in our parks

We have a great opportunity for fitness professionals to run sessions in our parks. This includes personal training or group fitness sessions including pilates and yoga.

If you would like to use a Tower Hamlets park to run a group exercise or personal training session, you need a licence.

Find out how to become one of our licensed fitness operators. We do not allow unlicensed businesses to operate in our parks.

Sir John McDougall Gardens

Sir John McDougall Gardens

Dating from the middle of the 20th Century the park was named after Sir John McDougall, a local member of the London County Council (LCC).  He was also a member of the famous flour milling family, who owned a factory on the south east quay of Millwall Outer Dock from 1869 until it closed in 1982.

The park was redesigned in the late eighties by the London Docklands Development Corporation when the ground level was bought up to the top of the river wall which allows a view of the river.  The park is linked by a footbridge to the blocks of flats across Westferry Road.

The park currently holds a Green Flag Award.
