It is also crossed by one of London’s hidden rivers, the Moselle and has a large lake with many birds. There is a playground for young children, a multi-use games area and a skateboard/BMX area. There is also a great outdoor gym for exercising.

The park also boasts a large playing field for casual games. The BMX dirt track along with the model traffic area make the Rec a great place for cycling for all ages.
