Christchurch Green is a large open green space that is conveniently situated in Wanstead High Street. It's close to lots of local amenities and places to eat and drink. The medieval church still stands within the grounds of the open space and is still widely attended. This area is very popular especially in the summer where the public enjoy having a picnic on the grass. There is also a festival held on this green once a year, usually in September. This year's Wanstead Festival will take place on Sunday 15 September, from 11am-6pm.

Barbecues are not permitted at any of our parks and open spaces.
