  • Mission statement

    Evergreen is an open access adventure playground in the heart of Hackney East London. We provide free, challenging, inclusive play to all children and young people aged 5 - 15 years regardless of ability, ethnicity, cultural and socioeconomic status. We are situated in just under an acre of land which comprises of a play building with sports hall, arts and crafts room, soft play room and kitchen where cooking sessions take place weekly.

    Our outdoor space has large, sometimes challenging play equipment built in the traditional "adventure playground" style. We have a forest area, covered football pitch and a nature garden with 2 ponds and a vegetable patch. We are open all year round, both after school, Saturdays and Monday-Friday during all school holidays. Our inclusive project enables children with a disability to play and socialise alongside their main stream peers. This helps break down preconceived ideas which often surround disability thus making a truly inclusive, accepting society.
