Today, Rise Park is considered a popular residential area in Essex, with green spaces supplementing the surrounding houses and creating a mixed landscape of manicured gardens and more rural and wild parklands. As a place to live, Rise Park offers both budget properties and more luxurious and larger sites – many of which were constructed when the area was first put on the property map back in the 1920s.

In fact, even then Rise Park was renowned as one of the most attractive and coveted sites for housing in Romford – something which remains to this day a reason why homes across the area are so desired, and why the schools are always full and over-subscribed.

Why move to Rise Park?

Life in Rise Park is full of juxtapositions and harmonious unions – with access to the city’s and towns of Essex, as well as London, just a short journey away. Essex has long been considered the rural neighbour of London and it’s this which makes areas like Rise Park so popular for homeowners wanting to benefit from the mix of countryside and city on their doorstep.

Things to do in Rise Park

Aside from the obvious travel to London and busier areas of Essex, Rise Park takes its name from an expanse of parkland which covers a huge 24 acres, and which plays host to sports pitches, parks, and children’s play areas to name just some of the activities on offer.

A plethora of local businesses add to the charm and community spirit of the area, or residents and visitors can get onto the A12 in minutes and find themselves in Brentwood, Chelmsford or Colchester – where shopping, attractions, and experiences are rife.
