Mile End Park Green Bridge
Mile End Park Green Bridge
The 1943 County of London Plan envisaged that a strip of open space could be created along the eastern bank of the Regent's Canal to connect Victoria Park with the River Thames. Mile End Park was developed over a number of years by demolishing substandard housing and landscaping the surrounding areas. The first major section opened in 1952. In some areas the land has been gently mounded to provide a contrast with the typical flat terrain of the park.

The green bridge is a pedestrian bridge opened in July 1999. It was built over the Mile End Road, seen here, which bisects the park. In the foreground is a Barclays Cycle Hire docking station.
