Pocket Parks

We have 31 pocket parks across Waltham Forest, which are small areas of contained planting or green space, which transform previously unused areas into pleasant places for residents to enjoy. Creating these places for people to meet and enjoy is essential to encourage more people to use the green spaces around the borough.
