Little Ilford Park (also known as Little Ilford Recreation Ground, Manor Park Recreation Ground)

Introduction

The 1920 Ordnance Survey map shows the two separate grounds divided by Reynolds Avenue but by 1939 the Avenue stopped at its junction with Dore Avenue and the two sides had been united, with a triangular area of gardens bounded by trees in the west, which still remains today. This now has a pergola feature with brick piers and numerous rose beds surrounded by a path system with seating, and a number of fine trees.
