Events

West Ham Park offer a varied annual programme of events throughout the year, from weekly guided health walks to children's summer entertainment, all of which are listed on our events calendar​.

Wild East

Our weekly Wild East tricycle sessions take place on Thursdays and Sundays year-round, close to the playground on the main path. Lively volunteers help children and adults discover the park’s amazing nature and history through activities like making bee hotels and bird feeders, and hunting for nature using clues. They also have lots of information on the wildlife and history of the park.

All events run from 1.30pm to 4.30pm and you can drop in at any time. Sessions are free to attend, no booking is necessary and all are welcome. 

Weekly health walks​

West Ham Park walks are held every Wednesday at 11am until 12pm. Please meet at the bandstand. For more information email parks.gardens@cityoflondon.gov.uk or telephone the West Ham Park Office on 020 8472 3584.

A health questionnaire needs to be completed before you take part in your first walk and is available on the day.

This is a fantastic opportunity to get active, make new friends and enjoy the fresh air in the magnificent surrounding of West Ham Park.

These walks are for everyone, whether you have just got out of the habit of exercise, need to lose weight or you may be recovering from surgery or an illness and want to start getting active again.

You can stop at any point on the route and rest. The walks are not competitive!

Dogs on leads are welcome. Please make sure that you wear appropriate footwear and clothing for the weather

Please check with your GP to make sure that they are happy for you to participate in this exercise.
