About the park

Clayhall Park is a mature well-landscaped park set in the heart of one of Ilford’s premier residential areas and one of our Green Flag Award Parks. There is a formal rose garden, pagoda and an impressive avenue of mature horse chestnut trees. Complete with a small maze with wheelchair access, the Rose Garden provides beautiful scenery and a relaxing escape from the rest of the park. The Park also has 2 play areas for younger children and for older children and tennis courts.
