Stepney Green Park

Stepney Green Park is on former common land that was once part of Mile End Green. This was the largest of several commons in the Manor of Stepney. It was the site of various historic events over the centuries, including the Peasants Revolt in 1381. In the 19th century, streets of terraced houses were built over much of the area. However they were largely destroyed by bomb damage during WWII.Stepney Green park greens

The LCC Stifford Estate was built in 1958-64 overlooking a new public park, Stepney Green. The three 17-storey towers were demolished in 1999/2000, and the park was re-landscaped in 2000 as Stepney Green Park. Stepney Clock Tower is in a triangular garden adjacent to the park, and was moved here in 1934.

The park contains an area of astro turf, with changing rooms, which is a key sports facility for the community. You can also book a sports pitch at Stepney Green Park.

Please note, due to coronavirus we are not currently taking bookings for the Stepney Green Astroturf or sports pitches at Stepney Green Park


The park is adjacent to Stepney Green Gardens and Stepney City Farm
