Fairlop Fair was cancelled this year but the country park was able to spring back to life with Kidz World.
As lockdown was eased Fairlop Waters Country Park, Forest Road, Barkingside, returned to being “a place of fun and happiness” but with social distancing guidelines in place.
Resident Ron Jeffries said it was so good to see the popular park being used again after months of lockdown.
