Park friends groups

We encourage residents to help us look after our parks, either informally by picking up litter while you walk or by joining a 'friends group'.

Friends groups are involved in activities that support their local park, including raising funds, maintaining and designing the space, and organising events.

There are friends groups for the following parks:

  • Blackshots and Hangman's Wood
  • Bulphan
  • Chadwell Recreation Ground
  • Corringham Town Park
  • Dilkes Park
  • Hardie Park
  • Parker Road
  • South Ockendon Recreation Ground
  • Usk Road

Contact us for more information if you would like to join a friends group.
