Haggerston Park has been named Outstanding London Sports Venue for June by booking platform MyLocalPitch.
The grassroots site is one of the borough’s best loved facilities, with access to football pitches, netball courts and tennis courts.
June saw a significant increase in grassroots tennis bookings at Haggerston Park, with the capital gripped by tennis fever.
Haggerston Park is run by GLL, who strive to make community services and spaces better for everyone through investing in time, energy and people.
