West Hackney Recreation Ground re-opening this Saturday

The Re-opening party for West Hackney Recreation Ground and St Paul’s Churchyard is this Saturday 6th September 12-3.30. 

There will be a picnic, music, and a free workshop. Bring some food to share, a rug and your own drinks. 

Mayor Jules Pipe and the Rt Revd Adrian Newman, Bishop of Stepney will also be there to formally re-open the park. 

The park has been restored with £670,000 of Heritage Lottery Funding and has involved:
  • creating new access routes to link the park with the front of the church
  • restoring original pathways
  • planting new woodland
  • installing play features
  • conservation work to the tombstones and headstones within the site
  • improving the appearance of the front of the church
There has been a fantastic effort from St Paul’s Church and local residents to see the project through. It will be great to have a local park for everyone to use again.
