Waterside Park is a joint-venture, residential development by Barratt Homes and Taylor Wimpey, in the far westerly suburb of West Drayton, on the fringes of London. The apartments are next to the Grand Union Canal on one side and the Fray’s River on the other. Waterside Park is a ten-minute walk from West Drayton Station, which is due to form a stop on the Elizabeth Line with the arrival of Crossrail services at the station. Properties here are available to rent, buy, and let as short-term serviced apartments.

Good Estate Needs Work

Verified Resident

Review Date Jun 2019

We were recommended to move to Waterside Park by an estate agent. We have always lived locally but we have a disabled member of our family and needed a home with specific adaptions. We moved into our house when it was brand new and we spoke directly with the developer to ensure everything met our needs. The house has a lift installed and the kitchen units and sinks have been lowered, we asked before moving in for the kitchen units to be made slightly higher and this was arranged. Whilst the kitchen is ridiculously small with the lift there is not much else they could have done on the configuration. The garden is also really small but is big enough.

We have had a few issues but the management company always sorts them out quickly and we think we get really good value for money for our rent. There is a problem with the windows as they always seem to jam but I don’t think we have actually reported it. We are allowed to paint and change the flooring as well as decorate how we want and we really love living in the house and development.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Good location lots of shops local. Unfortunately people in the local neighbourhood reduce its attractiveness. Overall a nice neighbourhood and I like that there is a lot of nature in the area and wildlife.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

The park in the estate was destroyed years ago and there have been no efforts to reinstate the equipment.

Recently we had some issues with a person breaking in to the estate and spray painting the walls which building management took 2 days to take him out, I’m sure you can imagine was quite scary! Also building iservices not equipped to have SkyQ boxes or have satellite so can not get the best TV service. Also the area isn’t regularly cleaned for how high the service charge is.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

The area is nice and quiet and I really enjoy going for walks down the canal

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

The internet connection is quite restictive as it is a lot slower than I expected.

Beautiful area however very small parking spots

Good size accommodation. Building managment clean it ebery week however it took a while to fix the lift. We sometimes have unsavoury people around the development abd parking area could be cleaner . All in all is maintained. However the parking spaces are very small especially visitor parking.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

I like it because its residential and quiet . Two stations are up the road so communication is great . There is s a river snd park to the property that are lovely. Also there is TeSco, Iceland and morrison within walking distance.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

I have to get a parking ticket twice even though I have a permit .

Design is a little old school and can feel dated at times. Additionally safety can be questionable, with younger people are always around the development. I have no had any issues with
Waterworks or heating however something management is slow to respond.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Transport links arent great until crossrails, quiet which is forgood for families however not for going out as in nightliferror.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Cross rail has been delayed

Waterside Park Yiewsley

The development has matured and is better than it was before. Lots of new builds in the area so it has ptarmigan pressure on amenities and traffic. I still like it though. It has good transport links and access to canal and green areas.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

It’s quiet. Access to transport is great. Many supermarkets on the high street. Canal and green areas.
On the improvement side, the coscillator should invest on cleanlines.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Nothing.
