Shopping and dining: Well Street has a supermarket and popular outdoor market, and Victoria Park Village has trendy boutiques and restaurants. Mare Street, Hackney, is a bustling high street.
The park: Victoria Park has a running track and changing rooms, tennis courts, fishing, pitches for cricket, hockey football and softball, playgrounds, a deer enclosure, an Old English Garden and a One O'Clock Club.
