Millfields Park is made up of three large open spaces around Lea Bridge and Chatsworth Road. The park is framed by avenues of mature plane and elm trees which follow the paths across the park. The Lea Navigation borders the park and links it to Springfield Park to the north and Hackney Marshes to the south.
We will be investing around £700,000 in maintaining and improving Millfields during 2015.
We'll be improving the pathways, walls and sport surfaces, renewing the play area, removing railings, replacing the park furniture, remodelling the entrances, upgrading the toilets and working to maintain the trees. We will also be repurposing the old paddling pool area.
Once this work is finished we will be looking at the possibility of developing a play area in the southern area of Millfields, providing funding is available.
May-June improvement works
We'll be undertaking major improvement works for 6 weeks starting from from 11 May. We will be working on the paddling pool, the main entrances and the pathway off Casimir Road. Please follow the signs for alternative routes during the works. We apologise for any inconvenience.
