The second phase of the regeneration of Shoreditch Park in east London was marked by the unveiling of a large-scale sculptural feature stone by artist John Frankland, titled 'Boulder (Shoreditch Park)'.

The piece, commissioned by PEER and Shoreditch Trust, is intended to invite park visitors to interact with it directly by rock climbing, or ‘bouldering’. There are several routes of varying difficulty whereby climbers can reach the top.

The stone measures over 4m high and weighs around 85 tonnes. It was supplied from Colas' Carnsew Quarry in Cornwall.

The piece is complemented by another granite stone at Mabley Green, which together make up John Frankland's sculptural work entitled Boulder.
