Hardie Park Trustees, Staff and Volunteers

For the very latest information please message Rob Groves


Run entirely by the local community, Hardie Park is the best park in Thurrock!

We run a cafe and training centre with the help of dozens of volunteers.

The cafe is open 7 days per week from 10-4pm (unless otherwise notified) and toilets are available to use whenever the building is open.

We sell a wide range of Cafe food, drinks, Italian coffee, snacks and of course, Rossi Ice Cream!

If you are interested in joining the team as a volunteer please visit our website at

A few local people who use Hardie Park want to gather more people together to imagine a transformed park that the whole community can be proud of. The aim would be to work towards Green Flag status!

We're working towards a lottery application for approx £400k, consulting with the community and park users especially young people.

In the next few months we will need to raise about £20,000 - if you have ideas of how we can achieve this let us know!
