Levy Memorial Ground is a small square off Church Street in Stoke Newington. The space is named after a former Hackney Councillor, Morry Levy. It is mostly paved, with a few benches and new raised beds for food growing.
The local community and corporate volunteers in collaboration with Groundwork, have improved the park's seating, signage and planting. The improvements were funded through the Pocket Parks programme which aims to improve the smaller green spaces which often get overlooked.
Transition Town Stoke Newington created five raised beds in the Memorial Ground to grow a variety of fruit and vegetables. The group also installed a compost bin and water butt to reuse as much waste on site as possible.
Barbecues are not allowed in the Levy Memorial Ground. If you'd like to hold a barbecue, there is a dedicated area in London Fields.
All dogs must be kept on a lead at all times. More information on dogs in parks.
