A very warm welcome

The Friends are a group of people who love Wanstead Park.

Once the site of one of England’s grandest houses, the Park still retains a 17th Century lake cascade unique to London.

It’s historical significance is complemented by its natural beauty, and provides a magical environment for the local community.

Now a Charity, our Mission is to raise public awareness of the history and ecology of Wanstead Park, fund improvements, and campaign for its preservation and enhancement. In particular we campaign to preserve the lakes, retain lake water levels and reverse any water losses.

We aim to represent the users of the Park, and are supported by an enthusiastic Membership and active Social Media following.

Please join us and help to ensure the Park remains the East London gem it is.
