De Beauvoir Square is a classically laid out garden square and is protected under the London Squares Preservation Act of 1931. The square consists of beautiful rose beds and lawn areas as well as a children's play area, and it's host to a number of small neighbourhood events.
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.

De Beauvoir Gardeners club
The De Beauvoir Gardeners club is a club for anyone in Hackney who has a window box, a small patch of ground, an allotment or a garden; for people who love getting their hands in the soil or those who prefer to simply read about gardens and gardening from the comfort of an armchair. All you need to join is a love of plants and planting.
De Beauvoir Square regularly hosts community events. If you want to put on your own event in the park, find out more about holding events in parks
Barbecues are not allowed in De Beauvoir Square. The use of all barbecues in London Fields has also been suspended following safety advice to all London councils from the London Fire Brigade.
