Use of barbecues in London Fields suspended
Please be advised the use of all barbecues in London Fields has been suspended following safety advice to all London councils from the London Fire Brigade. This is due to the current high risk of fire.
London Fields is one of Hackney's most popular parks. It's classified as common land due to its history as a site for grazing animals and moving them to market at Smithfield. The park's large grassy spaces are surrounded by London Plane trees. The park holds a Green Flag award - an award given annually to the best green spaces in the country.
