One of London's largest farms, Mudchute Park and Farm covers 32 acres in the Isle of Dogs. The farm itself is surprisingly compact, but full of animals, many out in the fields, plus a petting zoo and duck pond. Unfortunately the café has recently closed, but the main focus of the park is still the thriving, large Equestrian Centre, a riding school for all ages with an all-weather floodlit riding arena, show jumps and cross-country fences across the many acres. However, if this sounds too adventurous, just bring a picnic to have in one of the many green fields, watch the horses trot by and pretend you're in the countryside.

For the children, there is a wonderful day out to be experienced at the 40 acre Mudchute Park and Farm. The park is managed as a naturalistic landscape to encourage and support a wide range of plants and animals. The farm is the largest urban farm in Europe. There is a full range of farm animals, as well as an approved riding school, regular summer play schemes, festivals and agricultural shows. There is also an award winning restaurant, the Mudchute Kitchen.
Mudchute Park is 13.24 hectares in area size and is located in LAP area 8.
