Grays Town Park


Grays Town Park is located in the centre of Grays and is well-used by the local community. Its 2.5 hectares include:

  • a large family play area
  • a wide grassy area
  • a basketball court
  • a tennis court
  • toilets

It is a late Victorian park with ornamental flower beds and an eastern boundary landscaped with boulders.

Play areas are checked each week to make sure equipment is safe and tidy. The grass is cut between March and November, monthly throughout the summer.


Geocaching is a fun outdoor activity in which the participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or mobile device to hide and seek containers, called "geocaches" or "caches", anywhere in the world.

A Grays Town Park geocache is located in the park's south west corner, accessed via Bedford Road. It has been placed by Trailnet as part of a Heritage Lottery-funded project.

To the north of the cache you can find a tulip tree planted in 2012 by the Mayor of Thurrock to commemorate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
