Valentines Park, the finest in North Ilford.
Valentines Park nestles between Ilford and Gants Hill and is the largest park in Redbridge.
Built in 1697, Valentines Mansion dominates the North End of the park with a delightful kitchen garden and was the location for series 2 of the Great British Bake Off. The one where local sugar-addicted squirrels attacked their stores of food so much that they adopted plastic containers from then on.
