Parks 

Mayesbrook Park 

Lodge Avenue
Dagenham

Mayesbrook Park is a large and varied park with sporting facilities, an attractive nature reserve and a newly restored river landscape.  The southern section of the park features two large lakes which are rich in wildlife. The park provides over 40 hectares of open space with benches, picnic tables and weather shelters and is home to a number of the Borough's sports clubs.

The new wetland landscape has been developed to help the park to cope with more extreme changes in climate including heavy rainfall and drought. See the new leaflet for Mayesbrook Park, telling you all about your new climate change park.

The park recently received a Mayor of London Safer Parks Silver award for high standards of site safety and policing.
