Mile End Park is a linear park in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets which follows the Regents Canal from Victoria Park to Limehouse Basin. The Green Bridge, a pedestrian bridge over the Mile End Road, which bisects the Park close to Mile End tube station, opened in July 1999. The award winning bridge was designed by Piers Gough. The park is divided into a number of distinct zones: the Sports Zone in the south (Mile End Stadium and athletics track, skateboard park, go-karting, basketball, all-weather multisports pitch, has a Sports Centre, multiple 5-a-side pitches, a BMX track), three Play Zones, an Art Zone (with the Art Pavilion gallery and art lake), the Ecology Zone (with ponds and wildflower meadows and woodland walks). Recent additions are a new outdoor gym in the north of the park and an open orchard. The park hosts Mile End Parkrun. The renowned Mile End Climbing Wall and the legendary Palm Tree Pub both lie within its boundary.
The organisation with legal responsibility for Mile End Park is King George's Field Charity Board of Tower Hamlets Council.
Mile End Park is managed and maintained by Tower Hamlets Council
