Stonebridge Gardens (Snake Park)

Stonebridge Gardens is a small but popular park in London Fields ward, next to Haggerston Station. It was refurbished in 2016.

The park is home to the ever popular blue snake, a large mosaic play and art feature which dwells in the play area, which also contains monkey bars, a sand pit, multiple person swings, hammocks and a trampoline.

The park holds a Green Flag award. The awards are given to the best green spaces in the country and are awarded each year to make sure the quality of the green space remains high.

Barbecues are not allowed in Stonebridge Gardens.


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.

Play improvements

We know that the play area in ‘Snake Park’ is well loved and that the equipment needs replacing. In 2022 we consulted park users, local residents and children on design proposals to improve the play area. Around 80% of those surveyed loved or liked the designs and some made valuable comments, which we have used to improve the design. We plan to start the work on site in the spring.
