Clockhouse Gardens is tucked away so well that even many of the locals are unaware of its presence. The park consists of a central lake with a large natural duck island in the middle - the pathway circuits the lake and there are several good...More

The garden itself is well kept,peaceful and a tidy asset to Upminster, although with restricted car parking, which is shared to some degree with the residents of 'The Clockhouse' itself. However, during the Summer months is overpopulated with Canadian geese which can be very aggressive...More

beautiful lake with lots of ducks to feed with porridge oats. Very quiet and secluded. Lovely seating for the young ones.

Lovely to stroll around the well-kept gardens and lake. Plenty of seats to enjoy the peaceful grounds. Some parking spaces, but within eady walking distance of local car parks. Don't forget to take some bread for the ducks. M. Smith, Upminster

This was a delightful place to take my grandchildren but sadly I think it is now a health hazard due to large amounts of poo from the Canada geese that covers the grass and paths. There are just too many of these geese. I don’t...More

These are lovely little gardens. There could be more benches to sit on. And the hidden garden at the rear could have more use. Its lovely to see the ducks and geese with their young. Parking can be a problem when the local bowls club...More

Big problem as over run with rats, out of control, council really need to get this sorted, probable health hazard.

Grandson loves the wooden carvings - woodland animals, toadstools and a wizard. Very peaceful. Ducks, geese all hungry - bread is apparently bad for them so take special feed or get told off.

Small but very relaxing, tranquil public park. Pond, ducks and geese. There is also a bowling club here. Great for a relaxing stroll or dog walking. The park could do with some council investment to repair banks which have fallen away. Lovely park though.

This place is like a sort of secret garden, there are lots of ducks to feed (with seed not bread). A great place to come with children or walk your dog (on lead).
