What’s the score?
A decent sized pocket park handily located between the south side of Victoria Park and Roman Road, Bow. Fully enclosed and nicely landscaped, this is perfect for young kids – think toddlers learning to scoot and primary school kids having a kick-about after school.
St Stephen’s features two giant daisies, they were created by artist Helena Roden, along with the beautiful iron gates, and reference the wildflowers that were found on the site before it was developed. Roden’s giant flowers, including poppies, bluebells and buttercups, can be found in a number of other sites around Bow.
Great for …
- Young kids to play
- A stop off before / after Roman Road market (Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays)
- Hitting the outdoor gym while the kids play
- A range of wooden beams and wobble boards for children to balance on
- Outdoor gym equipment
- Paved pathways great for scooting
- Small lawns good for kiddie kick-abouts
- No toilets, but in non covid times there are toilets and a lovely community cafe in St Paul Old Ford Church 1 minute walk down the street
- Nearest cafes otherwise on Roman Road (including Mae and Harvey and Loafing) or in Victoria Park (The Hub) – 5 minute walk away.
The no.8 bus stops right alongside St Stephen’s Green.
