Mabley Green :: Shared Description

Mabley Green is common land in Hackney Wick in the London Borough of Hackney measuring 35.5 acres. Originally it was part of a continuous land mass on both sides of the Lee Navigation that formed the Hackney Marshes. in 1915 a piece of the Marshes was taken to create the National Projectile Factory and after World War I, in 1922, this site was used to create the Mabley Green recreation ground.
It has an all-weather football pitch, an outdoor gym and basketball hoops.
The large and distinctive rock in the centre of the park was placed there in 2008 as part of an art project. It is designed as a rock climbing or bouldering challenge, having several routes of varying difficulty. It can also be viewed as a piece of sculpture. The stone weighs around 60 tonnes and was quarried in Cornwall.
