Parks and open spaces

Tower Hamlets has many diverse parks, gardens and open spaces for residents and visitors to enjoy.

We currently hold a record number of awards for our parks . In 2019, we achieved 12 Green Flag Awards, including the first award for Sir John McDougall Gardens and  won seven Gold Awards at the London in Bloom Awards.

For the safety and enjoyment of park users, as well as the protection of our parks and open spaces, we have rules about using our parks.  These are our park byelaws.
