Daubeney Fields

Park improvements

We want to make the entrances to the park more welcoming, resurface some paths and extend the network of paths.

The illustrative masterplan and the notice of proposed works give an overview of the proposals. There’s more detailed information in the application and you can see detailed plans in appendix B.

As the park is classified as common land we need to seek permission for the works from the Secretary of State. If you’d like to officially comment on the proposals, please email commonlandcasework@planninginspectorate.gov.uk before Sunday 11 July.

If you have any questions about the proposals, please email bruce.irving@hackney.gov.uk.


Daubeney Fields is a park in the Kings Park ward of Hackney. The park sits between Daubeney Road and Kingsmead Way in E9 and has views over the Lee Navigation and Hackney Marshes to the east.

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.


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.
