I'm finally getting out and about more with the little one, and went on a lovely walk around the Olympic Park/Village in Stratford. The best walks end at a pub or with some great food, and this one ends at La Gelatiera.
We started out at the Great British Garden, tucked away near London Stadium. It's a charming little garden with plenty of shade, benches, and an interesting sun dial, which always seems to be mostly empty. From there, we joined the canal and walked along it for a little while eating lots of blackberries. Then we walked back up to rejoin the Olympic Park and walked across to the Wetlands walk. From there, it's just across the road to Olympic Village and then to the gelato shop. I strongly recommend the peanut, caramel, and chocolate flavour.
You can see the walk on the map below, indicated in red. The closest stations are Hackney Wick and Stratford, both of which have lift access.
