Walk Report

Steven's Hackney Parks & Open Spaces Circular, Sunday 25th October 2015
24 walkers, 19.5 miles - leader Gordon Parker
Gordon was joined by 23 people on a fine, sunny autumn day for the walk devised by Steven Muster through 20 miles of Hackney passing a total of 23 (what a coincidence!) named parks and open spaces, plus Victoria Park which is now entirely within the borough of Tower Hamlets.
The day proved thoroughly enjoyable and a number of the group expressed surprise at the pleasure they took from spending so many hours in Hackney! and of course at how much green space there is there. The trees were at their most colourful.
We stopped for coffee at Springfield Park and lunch in Clissold Park and had a couple of additional, unscheduled toilet stops. Having left Stratford station promptly at 9 am we arrived back there at 4.30 pm.
