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.

Bat Walks
Thursday 23rd August and Friday 28th September 2018
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. Come along on one of our popular free Bat Walks and try and see them! Everyone welcome - and yes we allow children on our Bat Walks! Bats are wild creatures so of course we can't guarantee they will appear

Newham's Biggest Leaf Pile

Our biggest and best - and dirtiest - event of the year! 
Rake up some leaves and help us make a HUGE leaf pile - the bigger the better!
