I have many happy memories of Barking Park in the 1950s; the lake with the paddle boats; the swimming pool where my school summer holidays were spent relaxing in the sunshine; the carnival with the huge fairground once a year in the park.
A meeting place where people could get together with friends & family; we used to walk from Pelham Avenue where I lived with my parents, two sisters & my brother; they were great times with none of the worries that are around today; children were allowed to be just that, children.
