Welcome to Lloyd Park Would you like to support and improve your park? Or help run events and activities, so others can enjoy Lloyd Park as much as you do? The Friends of Lloyd Park is welcoming new members who want to get active in their park.
Lloyd and Aveling park has been a favourite place for Walthamstow residents since 1900 and was once home to William Morris.

The Friends of Lloyd Park was formed in 2004 to represent park users in the ongoing management and development of Lloyd Park and Aveling Park. Some of the aims of membership are:
Lloyd Park and adjoining Aveling Park provide a large range of leisure, sporting, educational and cultural facilities. Formal gardens and recreational green spaces are complemented by a cafe; facilities for tennis, bowling, skateboarding and basketball practice; three childrens' play areas; a sensory garden; an aviary and an historical moat - complete with ducks and geese.
Cultural facilities include the nationally important William Morris Gallery; the Waltham Forest Theatre; and the Changing Room Gallery and artists studios.
Educational establishments within the park include the newly-expanded Lloyd Park Under Fives Centre and Aveling Park Secondary School.
A collection of beautiful and well-established trees and other plants are supplemented by seasonal planting displays. These are undertaken by the parks' overall managers the London Borough of Waltham Forest Greenspace Group.
