The park has various recreational facilities, including playing fields, and a cherry lined avenue leads towards tennis courts and the bowling green with roses around the border. There is also a sunken rose garden created around 1940 with circular beds and paths, the central area reached by steps with red brick piers each side.
Loxford Park was formed upon the grounds of the Loxford Hall Estate, which was purchased in 1899 by Ilford UDC for £11,200 to create a public recreation ground. The early-19th-century manor house of Loxford Hall stands outside the park in Loxford Lane.
