Palm trees in Victoria Park

Palm trees in Victoria Park

Happy Playful New Year

Its January and no snow - so far - unlike previous January days when Tower Hamlets parks have been full of children and adults playing, making snow people, having snowball fights, sliding on whatever can be found and generally having lots of snowy fun.

If you are walking through Victoria Park you will see a very unseasonal sight.

Palm Trees in Pools Park Playground! The bright green branches call to you through the other leafless trees, a warming sight on a chilly morning. These are a result of work done by chainsaw artist Dafydd Hughes who has also crafted a canoe which sits in Victoria Park....... somewhere. Read the story about it here
