Mile End Park

Local nameMile End Park
LocationLondon Borough of Tower Hamlets, London, UK

Mile End Park is a park located in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. It is a linear park of some 32 hectares, and was created on industrial land devastated by World War II bombing. Some of the park is within Limehouse and Globe Town, with the park laying on land to the east of the Regent's Canal and in the north, is separated from the southern edge of Victoria Park by the Hertford Union Canal and is open 24 hours a day.

A plan existed from the end of the war to create the park, but extensive development did not begin until the end of the millennium. A pedestrian bridge, opened in July 1999, was built over the Mile End Road, which bisects the park, near Mile End tube station. The bridge was designed by Piers Gough. Prior to the park's construction, 193 Grove Road - at the edge of the park - was transformed by sculptor Rachel Whiteread into a cast of its interior. This work won her the Turner Prize in 1993.
