Make Barkingside park a safe and fun place to play!



This is our closest park but we have stopped going due to the rats and badly maintained playground.

Barkingside used to be a lovely place when I grew up, although Im not living there it would be nice to feel comfortable to bring my children there. We visit Valentines regularly and if the park was nicer we'd probably frequent the shops more too.

Thank you to the petition organiser for highlighting a park which is unsafe for little children to play in. Barkingside is a nice area and having a park within it that has a potential for a child to get hurt lets the community down including the authority that is responsibile for keeping the parks safe for young children who play in it: Please do something about it . Thank you .

All children should have a safe and inviting space to play

I am local to the area, a Redbridge resident and have a toddler. This cause matters!

We need safer parks and play areas for our children

Theresa Snooks (Barking, 2024-05-19)


I want my kids to be safe at the park which is closest to where I live

Andrea Pearce (Ilford, 2024-05-20)


Redbridge play areas are all terrible, old equipment and often unsafe(with the exception of maybe Wanstead). Please compare to Waltham Forest your neighbouring borough for inspiration.

My grandchildren live there.

I take my daughter here as it’s the closest park walking distance to our house but it’s filthy, unsafe and old, it’s really in need of a renovation!

Harpreet Matharu (Ilford, 2024-05-22)


I’m singing because my child also plays here

I came here nearly 35 years it looks like the same did refurbish 5 years ago
some grassland still not even lots of water ponds after raining my grandchildren did hurt few times because of the sand when they ran around.

Parks should be safe, fun and enjoyable place to be for all responsible residents.

Agree the park needs some attention and be so lovely for the children of Barkingside to have somewhere amazing to play!!

I have young children and live locally! This park is depressingly bad. Especially as it’s located near so many primary schools!
