The deputy council leader met donkeys and took a ride on a park train at a revamped park.

The new attractions at the Hainault Forest Country Park were given a thumbs up by deputy council leader Wes Streeting after he joined visitors enjoying the park for the first time.

The park now offers train rides, a farm zoo, summer craft workshops, a visitor centre - which will host wildlife workshops too - and donkey rides for visitors to enjoy.

The new park additions come after a public consultation, with Vision Redbridge Culture and Leisure implementing the changes.

Cllr Streeting said: “The best news is - all of these activities are either free or very reasonably priced, which is ideal for parents worried about the cost of summer holiday activities.

“From donkey rides to ceramics workshops, visiting Hainault Forest is more than just a walk in the park.”
