Ingrebourne Hill mountain bikingThere’s a great deal to look out for. Whether it’s mountain bikes hurtling around the specially built track, spotting distant sights from its viewing point, taking in relaxing views whilst enjoying a picnic beside the lake, watching children playing in the Spitfire Scramble play area, or just observing the wildlife.

Brilliant bike park considering there is very little of this around. However, needs to be extended in the near future.

Thanks for your comment - we are currently exploring ways in which this facility can be developed and have recently re-dusted the surface and repaired existing berms and features to refresh the whole track. Community Ranger

Hi Ken - The car park closes at dusk and will soon be changing o 8pm. The latest the car park opens is 9pm at the height of the summer.

Lived around Hornchurch for 7 years and honestly never knew there was a bike park here. Really enjoyed it but you need to do more to raise awareness of its existence! Lovely park considering the lack of green space around the area generally.
