Want to get to know London through its parks? Join a Walk that takes in the Parks of the east side of London along the River Lea.
Starting at Stratford Station we will walk through Olympic Park, Three Mills Green, West Ham’s Memorial Recreation Ground, Hermit Road Rec, Star Lane Park, Malmesbury Road Park, Bow Creek Ecology Park and Botanic Square on the Leamouth Peninsula.
The walk covers about 5 miles and will take about 2 hours, finishing at a gallery on the new City Island at Bow Creek.
Accompanied children and dogs free – but the dogs have to be kept on a lead, and not bother other participants.
Where possible we try to choose an accessible route.
Meeting place: Stratford Station, south side by foot of stairs to Westfield
Take the tube: Central line, DLR, Elizabeth, Jubilee or Overground to Stratford
Cost: £8 early bird (upto 15 tickets) / £12 thereafter, per adult walker
