The park consists of two recreation areas divided by Reede Road, which were at first separately named, but since the 1980s together form Pondfield Park. The northern Park had perimeter planting, paths, avenues of trees and is largely playing fields, while the Recreation Ground in the south was laid out with children's playground, paddling pool, drinking fountains and planting.
The land, unsuitable for building, was presented to Barking by the London County Council in the late 1920s.
