Our Parks

Vision RCL encourages residents to take more opportunities to get fit and active in parks and open spaces, giving them the chance to enjoy their local area and embrace what the borough has to offer.

Our Parks scheme aims to commit to the actions needed to bring and build stronger and more sustainable communities together, promoting a healthy borough which is proud of its parks and open spaces by encouraging maintenance of these spaces. By volunteering in our parks you can share and learn a number of new skills as well as meet local groups and other volunteers too.

Redbridge has a huge range of parks and open spaces to work in, which means that there are plenty of opportunities within the borough to get involved with many different activities such as:

  • Planting Flowers
  • Maintaining Planted Areas
  • Weeding
  • Mulching
  • Watering
  • Pruning
  • Maintaining Hard Surfaces
  • Maintenance Projects
  • Leaf Removal
  • Updating Noticeboards
  • Litter Picking
  • Sweeping Sport Courts


The Our Parks agreements sets out commitments required from ‘adoptees’ and Vision RCL. These can be found detailed in Our Parks Responsibilities below.

Lease for the land will not be issued. There will be no changes to landowner entitlement and Vision RCL will maintain control of the relevant areas. The agreement does not confer any legal interest in the relevant area and confers no rights on the adoptee other than set out in the agreement.
