Walk the dog, jog, ride your horse or mountain bike, picnic or play, perhaps just kick back and relax.

With 4km of pathways and connections to Hornchurch Country Park, you can do it all on Ingrebourne Hill. 

There’s a great deal to look out for at Ingrebourne Hill. 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.
