Walking and cycling in Hackney's parks

We encourage responsible cycling in our parks and ask everyone to consider other park users when riding on public paths. See our cycling in parks code of conduct (PDF, 298KB) for more information.  

There's cycle parking in many of our parks and a Barclays Cycle Hire docking station in Shoreditch Park. Sustrans provide information on the cycle routes that run through our parks.

See our walking page for more information on walking in Hackney and our main cycling section for more information about riding your bike in the borough. You can also download a map of Hackney's cycle routes (PDF, 811KB).

Guided walks

Walking Together offer a range of walks in parks within Hackney for people of all ages, especially over 50s, beginners to exercise and people who feel unfit. The walks take between half an hour and an hour, and are led by a qualified health walks leader and first aider.

Ramblers' walking routes

The Ramblers have designed some walks through Hackney's parks.

The Capital Ring is a surprisingly green route that encircles London. The total distance is 125km (78miles) threading together parks and open spaces, mostly following pleasant residential roads in between. The route passes through Hackney's Clissold Park and Springfield Park. See Walk London for more information.
