Brampton Park: Small but mighty…

Brampton park is a lovely wee park in East Ham south that backs on to Brampton Primary school (you know, the one with the awesome ofsted reports? Yeah, that one)…

Open since 1915, this park is seriously cool if you are a tiny person or a parent looking for play places: it has swings, adventure playground, and in the summer it only has a flippin’ paddling pool as well! It wasn’t filled when we went, but as soon as they  turn the taps on we will let you know…

For grown ups or bigger people it has a peaceful and shady woodland-ish area with wild flowers and some vast grassy verges for picnics and relaxation…

There is also series of outdoor gym-like equipment such as pull up bars and balance bars, for those of you looking for a free way to keep fit. For the outdoor sporties, there is a basketball court and table tennis tables…

Our conclusion: It’s a relatively small park by london standards, but is well stocked for its size. It has all the usual park essentials and the added fun of the splash pool to boot so is great for Kids. Dogs have to be kept on leads though, so choose Central Park instead if you need to give the four legged friends a run around…

 

The deets:

What: Brampton Park. Small Park in East Ham, E6. Open dawn until dusk. Dogs must be kept on leads.

Where: Masterman Road, East Ham, E6 3LB

£££: Less than £10 per head on average. Around £20 for 3 courses + coffee.

Linky: Active Newham

 

Pssst….

One more thing – the park is flanked by a local community centre called Rainbow and we heard rumours that it might be the venue for an East Ham South community fun day this summer… We’ll keep you posted!

    The water seems to be being turned on (and the pool filled) each weekend at the moment. At least that’s what seemed to happen last weekend.

    Regarding dogs – they don’t have to be on a lead – the signs just say that they must be put on a lead if you’re instructed to do so.
