The title and imprint of the proposed park in Hackney with title appear at top centre, with a scale bar at bottom centre. The plan was commissioned by the House of Commons and issued in the 18th report of the Commission of Wood, Forests and Land Revenues. The project of a public park in the East End of London was financed by the sale of York House in St. James, Piccadilly. The park, designed by Pennethorne, opened to the public in 1845.
