Play area improvements

We’ve almost finished transforming the park’s play area into a fully playable landscape with an outdoor classroom. The play area will be reopened once the new planting and grass has had time to establish and take root. Thanks for your patience.

The nearest alternative park play area is located in Mabley Green. For further information about the project please contact parks@hackney.gov.uk.

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 daubeneyfields@gmail.com.

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.
