A recreation ground laid out as part of the garden suburb, providing tennis courts, bowls rinks and facilities for other pastimes. This ground ran from the south side of Deyncourt Gardens to the railway line, where the Masonic hall now stands. Several thriving sports clubs were based here.

Deyncourt Gardens in the early 1930s. The development of Deyncourt Gardens, also named after a former owner of Gaynes Manor, continued eastwards after the First World War on additional land. This was part of the Upminster Hall estate bought by W.P Griggs & Co. from the Branfill family.
