- Burials were first made in Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park in 1841 and were later stopped in 1966. Since then it has become a Site of Metropolitan Importance for Nature Conservation in 1995 and a Local Nature Reserve in 2001. The park has regular events such as Guided Spring Bulb Flower Walks, Wild Food Walks, Bat Walks and Grave Research talks. There are also open days of various sorts to encourage people to visit the park, and volunteer days where people can take part in the work involved, either with the natural history or with the local history. It claims to have 20 types of butterfly and 36 types of bird.
