Information about Leyton Jubilee Park.

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?

How to get there Click to get info

You can access the park via several entrances around the site:

  • Seymour Road
  • Marsh Lane 
  • Orient Way
  • Ive Farm Lane

A major new expansion of Leyton Jubilee Park is taking place in 2017 with the new sports facilities and parkland due to open in spring 2018. There will be some disruption to the southern end of the park, including the creation of the new car park off Orient Way, but we aim to keep this to a minimum.

  • All weather football pitch
  • All weather multi-use sports pitch, including hockey
  • Beach volleyball court
  • Sprint track
  • Car park
  • Pavilion including changing rooms, cafe and community room
  • Paths and wildlife areas

We have produced a plan to guide further improvements to the park over the next 5 years and this will act as the basis for our application for the nationally recognised Green Flag Award in 2017.
