Eastbrookend is an extensive country park created on land between Dagenham and Hornchurch damaged by gravel extraction, next to The Chase nature reserve. It opened in 1995.

Fels Fields to the north of Dagenham Road has large grassland areas frequented by skylarks and meadow pipits.

Eastbrook Grove to the south houses the visitor centre, built with the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund and designed to showcase environmental features such as low energy use. It has several large water bodies and the eastern section, adjoining The Chase nature reserve, has a heath-like character
