Parks and open spaces

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

This summer we have a fantastic variety of FREE summer events for all ages taking place in our parks, leisure centres, youth clubs and Idea Stores.  Find out about the events and download the full programme.

We have recently received a record number of awards. In 2019, we achieved 12 Green Flag Awards, including the first award for sir John McDougall Gardens and in 2018 we won seven Gold Awards at the London in Bloom Awards

Victoria Park is the only London park to have been selected as a national top ten winner of a 2018 Green Flag People’s Choice Award.
