3 reviews of Lloyds Park in English
Lloyd park is an oasis of green in the heart of walthamstow. A great place for families to relax on the grass, kids to play on the playground and teenagers to enjoy the skate park. There is also the excellent William Morris gallery for a bit of culture

Lloyds Park is a very nice park it has areas for everyone a kids playground/ park area and a skateboard park for the older kids, a flower area a small bird sanctuary a lake where you can see the ducks as well as sports areas where you can play tennis or bowls for the older people. It is a lovely place for a day out on those limited summer days that we have in the UK for the whole family. I’ve spent many days relaxing there over the years and I’m sure I’ll take my own children there in the years to come. I definitely recommend it as one of the nicest parks in the Waltham forest/ east London area.
LLoyds park is a large open space, best known for the Water House, or William Morris Gallery, a Georgian Mansion which was a childhood home of the Pre-Raphaelite artist and holds a world famous collection. However that is just for openers. Behind the gallery is a large moat with loads of wild-life, on the central island, the now defunct Waltham Forest Theatre. Explore further and you will find the Changing Room Gallery, where local artist display between March and October. Next to that is Cafe Horizon, which is staffed by students with special needs from the nearby College, however opening hours are limited.
There are tennis courts, bowling greens, basketball courts, and a skateboard court as well as swings for the tinies.
This park used to be covered in glorious floral displays but cutbacks have taken these, and the park-keepers away.
There are toilets in the cafe and the theatre, but are not available at all times. There is a single super loo in the car park.
The park was donated to the council by Victorian 'Penny Dreadful’ publisher Edward Lloyd, whose greatest success was “The String of Pearls” which is the story of Sweeney Todd!
