The Friends of West Ham Park are a group of local residents who love and use the park regularly.  We wanted to find ways to be more involved in the park's present activities and help the park management in the development of its future role in our community. 

  Keep up to date on what we're up to on our Facebook page

Bat Walk I
Thursday 24 August 2017. 8-9pm
We have tiny pipstrelle bats in the park, we don't know whether they actually live in the park but they do feed there, and just after sunset is the best time to see them.So why not come along on one of our popular free Bat Walks and try and see them!
We'll meet on the Bandstand just before 8pm, learn a bit about them from our expert and then walk across the park to see if we can find any. Bats are wild creatures so of course we can't guarantee they will appear
This event free but you must pre-book via Eventbrite here
Note: the park will be closed before we finish the bat walk, there is no exit until the end of the event, and exit will be onto Portway only.
If you have booked a ticket and are unable to attend please cancel your ticket as these events are very popular and people may be waiting for a place. Any spare tickets will be available at the gate on the evening.
