Lodge Farm Park
In 1918 the owners of the Estate of Lodge Farm who were Roger Reede's Charity agreed to lease the farm and premises of Lodge Farm for 14 years to the Agent of the High Grade Dairy Company. The land was to be used for farming only. On 10th March 1927 the owners agreed to sell several parcels of land to Romford Urban District Council for 1,350. The land to be sold stretched from a point at the north known as Black's Bridge to Carlton Road in the south.

Some time after, the Council started to use the land as a rubbish tip and when the tipping was completed the land was left uncultivated for some time to allow it to settle. In 1961 a comprehensive layout for the park was prepared and agreed by the Council and this is as seen today with two bowling greens and a children's playground. The cost was 42,000 and it was completed in 1962. A miniature railway is also in the process of being installed - see LinkExternal link
