The park is essentially in two parts, divided along the line of Bridport Place where there are a number of 1860s ornate lamp standards. In the 1980s various sports and recreational facilities were added in the western part. In 2008 improvements to the park took place, a huge granite stone was placed in 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.
Shoreditch Park was laid out by the LCC Parks Department on land cleared after World War 2 bombing, previously terraced housing. Nearby is the former Gainsborough Pictures film studios used by Alfred Hitchcock.
