Community – a place that is Barking Made

Barking Riverside is a place made by people like you.

An active community who takes pride in cultivating a vibrant social and natural environment.

Barking Riverside is a place that is accessible and inclusive, not just by design, but by an engaged and active community. Everyone here adds to its character, inspiring a deep sense of purpose, belonging and pride.

Home to a well-established and proudly diverse community, Riversiders play a leading role in making the neighbourhood a fun and fulfilling place to live, work and visit.

Local people lead a full calendar of events, and passionate advocates from all parts of the community run many local groups and initiatives. We work together to make Barking Riverside a place that everyone can be proud of.
