Lovely Park with some issues
Jun 2021 • Solo
The park is fantastic, it has nice open spaces for playing football or hobbies while you got couple of ponds on different side with ducks, geese and swans. There is a stream that is called cranbrook when you enter the park that has the car park from Perth Road or Brisbane Road and then it be on the left, also there is a mansion that the park used to be part of and holocaust memorial.

I gave it a 3 due to issues that it has, each time i go there, there is litter everywhere and it sad that people are inconsiderate morons just don't care about nature or environment while potheads roam the park from hiding in bushes or under the shelters causing problems and i had some asking stupid questions before. Also some historic structure like the old clock tower been tagged with graffiti but i love the park but im disappointed what it used for.

So disappointed.
Dec 2019
Last time I was there, just before I moved, it had really gone downhill. The ponds and the streams through the park were all full of rubbish and I actually saw a rat running around near the entrance in Perth Road as I was leaving. I hope that when I next manage to get up there that a park that I have visited since I was a child will have been spruced up.

Summer walks

A lovely place for picnics and leisurely walks . People could do more in terms of disposing theirs in the bins provided.

Relaxing stroll

I love this place especially where is not many people around. If you an outdoor person and you like contact with nature you will like it too. When is sunny and warm you can easily spend there whole day.

How to destroy a manor garden

Valentines park is now over run with grey squirrels ,canada geese, crows and rats. This place is unfit for human co- habitation.

A time well spent
Dec 2019 • Solo
I decided to visit the Valentines Park on my own on a weekend. The part itself is very conveniently located in Ilford. It has a lovely sprawling spread of greenery with a beautiful lake in the middle. The lake is full of birds, and they are used to humans being around - so you can actually go quite close to them and watch them. The bunch of grey squirrels are really friendly, and if you are carrying some goodies for them(monkey nuts are a bit hit), then they would come to you running and then take the nuts literally from your hand.

Overall, a very pleasant experience in the midst of nature.
