Hi we live close to it. It's a good park with lots to do. Also there is a pop up beach there till the 31st of august. If you do go to the beach make sure you take cash as no cards are accepted.

yes well worth it...go to tumble bay playground for the kids, next to a cafe.

go the other side of the stadium and hop on bridge across the canal to hip hackney canal side bars artists etc - fish island hidden-london.com/gazetteer/fish-island/
As in Hackney Wick itself, the relatively affordable avail­ability of disused industrial premises has attracted a thriving community of artists and designers to Fish Island.

On Roach Road, The Counter is a charac­terful café within Stour Space, an exhibition, performance and studio space for the devel­opment of creative enterprises.
