    Fantastic place to bring the family. Two playgrounds, two cafes, duck pond & boating pond. Rent boats from £10/30mins (West lake). Great way to spend a day. 10-15mins walk from Mile End tube station.

    At the east end of the park by Cadagoen Terrace there are some pedestrian stone alcoves from the parapets of the old London Bridge; the one with all the buildings on. Very chilled place to sit.

    Possibly the best park in London. Great for people watching. Hipsters on bikes, fitsters in Nike top-to-toe, in-line skaters like it's Venice Beach, and coffee from Pavilion.

    Such a nice park with two (equally) great places for brunch, lunch and coffee. A really great place for a walk on the weekend - especially when you consider that you can also walk along the canal too!

    One of the greatest parks in London. Go for breakfast at the pavilion cafe and after you had enough of the park you can walk along th canal towards hackney.

    Go for a run in this spacious park! Some drinking water dispensers can be found along the outer route. For an additional outdoors workout find a bunch of pull up and parallel bars on the eastern side.

    1 September: Sit in an alcove of old London Bridge. Two of the 1760 alcoves from London Bridge were relocated to the eastern fringes of the park in 1860, where they now act as simple park seats.

    Gorgeous! Take a walk around the whole perimeter to get a taste of different Hackney life, then head for drinks in Victoria park village when the sun goes in

    Nice cycle circuit with gentle incline and straights to power through. Hazards: Kids throwing stuff, blind turn when anticlockwise, joggers with earphones stepping onto path. Best on early mornings

    One of the best spot in East London (Even Greater London) for running. Also as good for a sunbath or just read a book. Peaceful.

    Not that typical as Hyde Park, but maybe nicer for this reason. Go there through Regent's Canal. Having a small barbecue there is a great idea for summer time.

    Calmer than London Fields, but still buzzy on a summers day. Great for running and has it's own running club, Victoria Park & Tower Hamlets Running Club.
