Play area improvements
We'll be starting work to transform the park's play area into a fully playable landscape with an outdoor classroom on 21 January. The play area will be closed during the work. The nearest alternative park play area is located in Mabley Green.
We've designed the new play area in consultation with the local community, working alongside local primary schools and children's centres and the park user group Daubeney Fields Forever. It will include traditional play equipment but also use the landscape to encourage more active, imaginative and accessible play.
The play area will reopen by the end of March. For further information about the project please contact email@example.com.
Park user group - Daubeney Fields Forever
We are working with the park user group Daubeney Fields Forever to raise funds to refurbish the play area. If you would like to become more involved in this park and the project, please contact Gerry Tissier at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hackney Marshes adventure playground
The Hackney Marshes adventure playground is based in Daubeney Fields and managed by the Learning Trust. Skilled play workers are on hand to encourage and help with swinging, climbing and digging, building dens, cooking, painting and more. Adventure playgrounds are usually open after school, on Saturdays and during holidays, and accept children aged from 6 to 15 years.
Barbecues are not allowed in Daubeney Fields. The use of all barbecues in London Fields has also been suspended following safety advice to all London councils from the London Fire Brigade.
Dogs are excluded from the play area. Council officers have the power to request that dogs are put on leads if they are behaving aggressively, causing damage, or if their owner does not have appropriate control over them. More information on dogs in parks.
