Millfields Park is made up of three large open spaces around Lea Bridge and Chatsworth Roads with avenues of mature plane and elm trees. The Lea Navigation is on the east edge of the park and links it to Springfield Park and Walthamstow Marsh to the north and the Middlesex Filter Beds and Hackney Marsh to the South.
Millfields Park has lots of facilities to cater for all age groups:
- two children’s playgrounds (North Millfields and South Millfields)
- basketball courts
- community orchard
- conservation area
- cricket pitch
- picnic tables
- football pitch
- tennis courts
- trim trail (wooden gym apparatus)
- cycle routes
- toilets (NW corner, North Millfields, by the playground)
A programme of events, such as the Secret Cinema, tree planting sessions, and ecology talks take place every year. Millfields Park is licensed for plays, showing films, live music, recorded music and dance performances. North Millfields usually hosts a fairground at least once a year.
You can get refreshments from the Princess of Wales between North and South Millfields, or Millfields coffee shop on the SW corner of South Millfields. Chatsworth Road has many cafes and restaurants, and a market on Sundays.
Free Range Urban Kids, based on the woodland edge of South Millfields, is an Ofsted registered forest school.
