A Delight off Shoreditch
A simply perfect place to take in life and relaxe
Location: Arnold Circus, E2
Description: Now this is a jolly nice 'green space' - just off Shoreditch High Street - lies one 'Arnold Circus', a small but perfectly formed park.
A charming and relaxing place to sit down, there's even an old-fashioned bandstand (a Victorian bandstand to be exact) in the middle of an array of surrounding flats and greenery.
More recently this year (2009), 'Friends of Arnold Circus' came into being, with the main focus was to re-claim it back for the whole community, with seating, and even a bench designed by Michael Marriott.
So in conclusion, when you are in Hackney, perhaps passing through feeling tired and in need of rest and relaxation - look no further.
