Our commitment Click to get info

We are committed to giving you and your family access to better leisure facilities and making the borough an even better place to live. As part of these plans we’ve brought the improvements to Marsh Lane Playing Fields and Ive Farm together to create Leyton Jubilee Park, named to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

We have invested heavily into the park over the past 6 years installing a spectacular pirate ship for 3+, an outdoor gym, natural play equipment, play areas, football pitches, basketball court, pavilion, KukooLaLa Cafe and new wildlife areas. This park really does have something for everyone, so why not visit this weekend?
