Mabley Green (also known as Homerton Recreation Ground)7915

London, Greater London, England

Brief Description

The park remains a large open playing field surrounded by notable London planes on the north and east sides. In 2008 a huge granite stone was placed in the centre of the park, part of 'Boulder' a sculpture project by artist John Frankland in two Hackney parks. In both parks the boulders are intended to be used for climbing.

History

Between 1915 and 1922, 37.5 acres of land were taken from Hackney Marsh for the Government War Department's National Projectile Factory manufacturing munitions, but later the area was cleared to provide Mabley Green Recreation Ground.
