Victory Park, Stratford, London

28 Mar

Victory Park in Stratford, London is located at the heart of the former Olympic Village, now East Village. It was designed by Vogt Landscape Architects and is not currently open to the public. The park is bound on three edges by residential accommodation with Stratford International train station located just to the south east of this park.

The main body of the park is composed of a gently contoured areas of grass with numerous groups of trees. Two arcing resin bonded paths which intersect at the park’s centre cut the park into four zones.

To the park’s south and eastern edges a low stone edge has been installed. This element continues the radial theme of the footpath and performs the function of a retaining structure and an informal seating edge.

Groups of trees are also located within the resin bonded areas outside of the parks boundary. The tree planting pits are topped with self binding gravel to allow moisture and water to gain access to the tree roots.

    firstly i would like to thank you for such an amazing park and all the calisthenics equipment which i use on a regular bases.
    i would like to suggest an improvement which could me made which are as follows:
    -a new set of parallel bars
    – monkey bars
    i believe these two things would make a great improvement as there are no parallel bars at the moment and moneky bars for more workout methods

    I hope you take my suggestion into consideration.
    Thank you

      Firstly I should make it clear we are not responsible for the design of this park, as stated in our post Vogt Landscape Architects are. I agree with you it is a fantastic park, I would suggest you present your suggestions to the park management team.
