About Shoreditch Park

Originally rows of terraced housing, flattened in the 1940s by the Blitz, Shoreditch Park is now a small but well-loved community space. Temporary 'pre-fab' housing was erected on the site but was cleared betweem 1964 and 1973, creating the park. It regularly hosts a range of annual events as well as providing a home to tennis courts, a junior rugby pitch, a children's play area, a football pitch, a giant boulder for rock climbing, a volleyball court, an amphitheatre and a cycle hire scheme.
