Mile End Park information
The 36-hectare Mile End Park is a long, narrow series of interconnected green spaces wedged between Burdett and Grove Rds and Regent’s Canal. Landscaped to great effect during the millennium year, it incorporates a go-kart track, a children’s centre, areas for public art, an ecology area, an indoor climbing wall and a sports stadium.
The centrepiece, though, is architect Piers Gough’s ‘green bridge’ linking the northern and southern sections of the park over busy Mile End Rd and planted with trees and shrubs.
