King Edward Memorial Park occupies the site of the former Shadwell Fish Market Estate. Features include a bowling green.
The site was acquired by the King Edward VII Memorial London Committee following the King's death in 1910. It was laid out with bowling greens, playgrounds, flower gardens, a bandstand, riverside promenade and a long balustraded terrace overlooking the park on the north boundary. A memorial to the King was placed on this terrace at the top of a flight of steps leading to the main area of the park. It was opened to the public on 24 June 1922 by King George V.
