  • Visitor Information

Springfield Park was formed in 1905 from the grounds of three private houses, one of which still survives and serves as a delightful cafe. The grade II-listed White Lodge (or 'Springfield House'), now known as Spark Cafe, housed in an early to mid 19th century manor house and standing in the south-west corner of the park, is a convenient spot to rest and revive after brisk walk around the park or its pond. With its elevated position this part of the park offers fine views across the River Lea and Walthamstow Marshes. Head down to the River Lea, or Lee, to the north-east, and you can follow the towpath for miles through the Lee Valley Regional Park to Bow and eventually right down to East India Dock. Crossing over the river leads you to the Lee Valley and the Ice Centre beyond.
