Wanstead Park E12 - Redbridge

Remains of an important landscape dating from the late C17 to the early C19 and associated with George London and Humphry Repton, further developed in the late C19 by the City of London as a public park. The central area was converted to a private golf course in the early C20. Features of the historic designed landscape survive but are in poor condition. A Parkland Plan has been prepared and a steering group of stakeholders meets regularly to promote implementation. Possible sources of funding are being explored.
