A new improved look for Bartlett Park

Tower Hamlets Council have been working with Levitt Bernstein Landscape Architects on a scheme to make improvements to Bartlett Park. View the new design for the park.  For a copy of the design please contact us at

The new inclusive playgrounds is now open.  The equipment in this playground is accessible to all children including those with additional needs. 

Bartlett Park will be re-opened on a phased basis.  The new playground, adult gym, grass pitches,  dog walk area and the garden adjacent to St Saviours are now open.  The former adventure playground site will be converted into an ecology and play zone.   The remainder of the works to the main park area will be complete as soon as possible, which we anticipate will be by the end of 2020.

If you have any comments or questions about the project please contact
