  • Visitor Information

This super expanse of greenery is tucked away in East London. A charming path winds its way through woodland before opening out on to a glorious meadow that blooms with wild flowers in summertime. The biggest plus is the large lake, it’s not the Mediterranean but it does have a delightful shingle beach running down to its waters.

Fractious kids can always be easily entertained by the millennium tree trail while keen fishermen cast their lines into the blue beyond. To fish, you must be a member of the Newham Angling Club but new members are always welcome.
