Abney Park is a 32-acre park in Stoke Newington with freely available access to all. It was formerly a garden cemetery, and is now a precious nature reserve and public space offering peace and tranquillity amid the busy urban environment of Hackney. It welcomes over a half a million visitors a year, and it has remained open during the pandemic. About the Abney Park Trust: Abney Park Trust is an independent registered charity with the mission of promoting the Park's history, wildlife and role in the community. It is a volunteer-led organisation working with Hackney Council. In 2019-20 the Trust ran 30 tours, talks and community engagement events on site and hosted 40 nights of theatre productions, engaging over 7,500 people.
