Barking Park 

Barking Park is the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham's oldest park, opened in 1898. It consists of nearly 30 hectares consisting of a 910 metre long lake, ornamental areas, tree lined avenues, playing fields and facilities for boating, bowls and football.

The Barking Park Education and Outreach Ranger Service organises an interesting and exciting annual program of events and activities including a park open day, play sessions and educational walks and talks.

Barking Park also hosts an increasing number of community events each year, coordinated by the borough's Events Management Team, such as the annual East London Mela, fun fairs, firework display and circus.

The park secured £3,254,000 funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund in February 2008, under their Public Parks Initiative, for the restoration and improvement of the park.

Barking Park is managed and maintained by the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham.
