About the park
Barkingside Recreation Ground entered into a deed of Trust in 2012 and is now formally known as Queen Elizabeth II Field Barkingside Recreation Ground. It has a traditional playground and a natural play area which is very popular with children of all ages. It has various obstacles and apparatus that cater for all children with different abilities. At one end is fenced–off equipment, including swings and climbing frames and at the other side is an open play area with hills and ropes between trees to walk, new equipment (tyre swing, wobble dish) that can be used by children of various ages and abilities, and a quiet area with boulders and trees.
Barbecues are not permitted at any of our parks and open spaces.
Car parking is available at this site, payment via RingGo. No cash payments are accepted. Find out more on our car parking and park rules page.
