Bird facaes and rat infestations. Keep children well away!
Jul 2021
Avoid this dump could be hazardous to humans. Goose facaes everywhere, unkempt bush areas with brambles etc. This place is hazardous to young children.
The london borough of redbridge should hang their heads in shame for there total lack of allowing this once beautiful park turn to a health hazard.

A lovely view from my Window, no matter what season, plenty of greenery, nice lake, open spaces, kids play area, outdoor exercise area, big enough to have a pleasant walk, cycle or run. Pleased to have this lovely park on my doorsteps.

Standard East London park

This park is like most in the area - a scattering of rats but mostly clean. A small ish park but a large open space.

There is a good play area for kids (small and big kids) and there is an outdoor gym. There is a large pond with plenty of geese and ducks too

A Park with a View
Aug 2017 • Family
South Park would be everything (and more) that you want in your neighbourhood park. This is situated very close to A13, and is accessible from 3-4 different sides. The best thing about it is that it has almost everything that one can think of for people from diverse age groups and interests. There is a play area for toddlers, a separate one for school going ones, and then tennis courts, basketball courts and a play area for teenagers as well, and not to miss the outdoor gym for adults. And if you are the type who would like to sit on the greens and leisurely gaze around at scenic surroundings... well there's a lake along the greens with 5-6 different varieties of birds (ducks, geese, pigeons, bats, sparrows, swans). And with an abundance of trees and flowers (some planted by volunteers), the idyllic setting is complete.
I found so many things that could be learnt by administrators in countries like India on how to develop and maintain their parks and recreational areas- simple things like resident/community participation, having a park keeper residing within the park (proper office and a gypsy that goes alongwith it), abundance of information to interest the visitors (couple of photos are attached)- sample this... the park is more than a hundred years old, and is older than most of the surrounding residential areas, and has a history too- during WW2, apparently a rocker had fallen in the park that destroyed the park keeper's office and residence and claimed quite a few lives!!!
You can't imagine any of this if you were not told...
So, if you are anywhere in Ilford, grab your sneakers, a book, your kids, rackets, balls...anything else that catches your fancy, and head over to this wonderful place. It'll be fun...

Very nice Park
May 2017 • Family
South Park is down the South park Drive and the 145 passes just in front. We were luck to visit the park in Summer. Very nice place, lovely atmosphere, a lot of friendly people around. It's so nice to take a walk through. There is everything for kids and they will really enjoy, especially meeting and playing with other kids. The lake is also peaceful and offers a boat ride.

Well used and enjoyed park
Mar 2017 • Family
I'm not sure if they still hire boats out on the lake/pond however theirs the usual things for small medium and larger and older kids to do. Plenty of space to run scream and shout in.

Beautiful Park with a calming atmosphere

A wonderful Park which is a stones throw from the hustle and bustle of the A13. Has its own free car park with plenty of car spaces as well.

Beautiful park with lake
Jan 2017 • Solo
Lovely local park with facilities for all the family. There is a popular outdoor gym as well as basketball and tennis courts, large open green for football and paths for walking and cycling. There's a lovely lake that attracts swans, ducks & other birds. There is also a small wildlife centre where you can get info on the local birds and other wildlife. For children there are three play areas- one for very young ones near the South Park road/ South Park terrace entrance. Older kids can play in the enclosed area closer to the lake. A new activity area including zip line and mini trampoline can be found near the basketball court.
The park is popular amongst the local community with many morning walkers, joggers and dog walkers. You also get the occasional cyclists. A couple times a year the park is used to host a fair.
