COVID Guidance & Updates

Cricket Tournaments

Please note unauthorised cricket tournaments are not permitted in Loxford Park or any other park in Redbridge, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Gatherings of over 30 people increase the risk of transmission and are a threat to everyone.

If you would like to play formal cricket in our parks, then please contact us on parks.enquiries@visionrcl.org.uk and we will happily support you in organising safe, COVID-secure cricket matches in our parks.

Anyone organising or participating in any unauthorised cricket tournaments will be reported to the Police. We are working with the England Cricket Board (ECB) to monitor social media and information regarding proposed tournaments and information found will be handed over to the Police. The Police will also attend sites and could issue fines of up to £10,000.

About the park

Loxford Park is a large park that has a lot of mature trees and shrubs that provide a great habitat for wildlife and birds. It benefits from an old sunken garden that is popular with park users wishing to rest from walking and also popular with skaters who enjoy a small skate park in this area. The Park has a fantastic play area featuring a huge tunnel, mounds to run up and down, boulders and planting and a nest swing that can be enjoyed together by children of all ages and abilities. In January 2015 Vision Redbridge Culture & Leisure worked in partnership with the charity Trees for Cities to plant an edible tree trail along the boundary of Loxford Park. All 30 trees planted were chosen for their edible features such as fruits, nuts, leaves or bark. As well as providing a source of food, as the trees mature they will become a prominent feature in the park landscape.

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

Edible tree trail

The trees were all planted by volunteers including local residents and primary school children.
