Springfield Park covers approximately 40 acres and boasts lovely gardens, fountains, a pond, bandstand, conservation areas and extensive views of across Walthamstow Marshes and the River Lea.
Facilities include tennis courts, a cricket pitch, children's playground, seasonal athletics track, table tennis table and three outdoor chessboards.
First opened to the public in 1905, Springfield Park was formed from the grounds of three private houses, of which only Springfield House (The White House) remains, and is now home to a cafe. There is also a ranger's office and accessible toilets.
The park was awarded Green Flag status by Keep Britain Tidy which recognises the best green spaces in the country.
It boasts an impressive wildlife checklist enjoying visits from 56 species of bird, including kingfishers, great spotted woodpeckers, tawny owls, and song thrush.
It is also home to over 234 species of native plans and has a remarkable Victorian collection of trees and shrubs. Less obvious, but just as important are the sightings of the protected pipistrelle and noctule bats, and the many types of insects, mosses, lichens and fungi found at the site.
