PostSubject: Victoria Park Running Track, London    Mon Nov 22, 2010 8:09 am

Used to be my favourite place to train but living on the other side of London now.

Victoria Park Running Track is a criminally neglected gem of a place in East London. It has a full 400m track which is slowly being allowed to disintegrate and become overgrown with weeds. There are pullup bars, dip bars, climbing bars and some other bits and pieces. In the summer it's just a really nice place to work out especially if you like to incorporate track sprinting into your routine.

Equipment 5/10
Overall Impression 6/10
Pullup Bars Yes
Parallel Bars Yes
Monkey Bars No
Parking Free on road by Queen's Gate
Bike Fence by the track

Hey all, I was at Victoria Park yesterday (Fri 5th July 2012) and the Parallel Bars aren't there anymore.

The other gear is still there. But the running track doesn't seem to exist, it looks like it's been ploughed over.

All the best.

This is one sad, neglected workout area. But the good news is the dip bars are back.

The last time I was there someone had taped a "missing" poster for them to the pull up bars claiming Boris had melted them down for the Olympics Smile
