Walking and cycling in Hackney's parks

Our main walking and cycling pages have more information about where and how to walk and cycle in Hackney.

Cycling in parks

We encourage responsible cycling in our parks; cyclists must consider other park users when riding on public paths:

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

See our main cycling section for more information about riding your bike in Hackney, or download a map of Hackney's cycle routes (PDF, 811KB).

Guided walks

The Walking Together programme offers a range of walks which take place in parks within Hackney. The walks are suitable for all ages, especially those who are beginners to exercise, feel unfit or are over 50. The walks take between 30 and 60 minutes and are led by a qualified health walks leader and first aider. All are welcome.

Capital Ring

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. In Hackney, the route passes through both Clissold Park and Springfield Park. See Walk London for more information.
