Located at the southern end of Goodmayes Lane is the Parkside Community Centre. The centre provides a venue for many community events and activities for children and adults.
Activities for children include: a sessional playgroup for 2-4 year olds, parent and toddler group, different styles of dance and language classes for children, karate, and tuition classes.
Other activities include: yoga, keep fit, aerobics, martial arts, embroidery, pilates, friendship group for pensioners, support group for sufferers of stroke and their carers, drama, performing arts, tuition, Portugese lessons, zumba and embroidery.
The centre also has two halls for hire (one with a stage). However, the venue is extremely well-used and therefore rooms are often fully booked.
