Upton Park is an area in the London Borough of Newhammarkercentred upon Green Street, a high street that runs north-south between the A118 Romford Road and the A124 Barking Road. Green Street is part of the boundary between the former County Boroughs of East Hammarker and West Hammarker and contains a large number of shops, both major chain stores as well as locally-owned shops, Upton Park Library, and Queens Road Marketmarker, a covered food and clothing market. Many shops and market stalls specifically cater for east London's large Asian community. Upton Park tube stationmarker is also on Green Street, close to the market. Plans to demolish the market and replace it with a large supermarket, luxury apartments and a smaller indoor market have been vigorously resisted by market traders and large sections of the local community.

The Boleyn Groundmarker, the home stadium of West Ham United Football Club, is located at the southern end of Green Street, and is frequently referred to as Upton Park. Another football club from the area, Upton Park FC, were early pioneers in the game and represented Great Britain at the 1900 Summer Olympics football tournament, where they won the gold medal.
