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.
