Goresbrook Park 7809

London, England, Greater London

Brief Description

Goresbroook Park follows the course of the Gores Brook and is in three sections, divided by Dagenham Avenue.

History

Liable to flooding and thus unsuitable for housing development by the LCC, the land was reserved for open space and presented to Barking Council in 1930. By 1938 part of the site was levelled, laid with turf and landscaped, and had a few facilities such as a sandpit and paddling pool, but it remained largely undeveloped into the 1950s.
