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.

A lovely estate, perfectly imperfect I think

Review Date Apr 2020

The development is mainly good. Everyone is pretty relaxed. Depending on what atmosphere you like, the back of the estate is very quiet, I live in the middle of the estate where you can enjoy a little bit of neighbourly drama, some noise and shouting – and this is genuine I don’t mind it from time to time. The development itself if well located, there’s lots of green space, a small lake where you may find swans, there’s the canal that you can take a nice stroll by at night and there’s a forest at the back too with more streams and wildlife.

There was play park, it was burnt down years ago but there has been no effort from management to replace it.

Everything else is well and fine. They do look after the gardening, sometimes the trees do overgrow but the property managers do eventually get round to it. There’s also very lovely lavenders planted at some point in the year and I really like that.

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

It’s an excellent location for amenities, just 20 minutes from central London via National Rail. Large Tesco Extra just a 5 minute walk away. The area is relatively safe, I have never felt threatened in the area.

Multicultural area which is good. There’s no nightlife which is good and bad, good because it means the neighbourhood is quiet but bad because sometimes you want to stay local but there are quite a few pubs – I have experienced racism in these pubs please note.

Lots of green space around.

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

That there is a shooting range just behind the estate. Had no idea but had I known sooner I would have gone, it’s good to try new things

Beautiful aesthetically, poor geographically

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Oct 2018

I fee that the development I live in is beautiful to look at with a large park, swan lake and a canal running along side it. Whilst it is aesthetically pleasing, the geographical are poor. We live on a street where ASBOs are right next to working class. So a lot of crime and drug abuse on the road, in front of your house. It’s unpleasant in that way.

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

The area is perfect, it’s suburban, verging on urban. Plenty of shops and a couple of independent restaurants. Lots of chicken shops (but I like that). If you want something a bit nicer you can always go to Uxbridge which is just a five minute drive down the road with great shopping centres and all the top brands.

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

I’m an explorer so I found everything very quickly. My mum didn’t know that there is a park with swings on the Estate so I guess people should be aware of that!

Perfect for retirement

Neighbours are very friendly, however we don’t interact much. No issues

Agency doesn’t always amend the problems with the electrics in terms of with the home electrics as bulbs aren’t the universal as most so it is hard to find.
Issues with toilets and cookers have been responded with very quickly.

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

Area is quite plea sent shopping centres are quite close as retired

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

I knew nothing of the area as I never lived in London.

Low safety but overall a good place to live in

Verified Resident

Review Date Jun 2019

I have the canal view because my flat faces the canal. Some break ins have happened recently, I heard . Sometimes homeless people sleep in the garage, the lift was broken for 4 days. There are bins in the common area and we have to drop off the rubbish there. The parking permit is for both tenants and owners.

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

It is calm, 10 min away from the train station. Tesco is the nearest supermarket just on the other side of the canal. It takes 10 minutes to get to the public transport stops.

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

It is a bit far from a public transport

Bittern house

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Apr 2020

Exterior of the building could do with a repaint as visually it appears outdated. Design facilities of the inner buildings could do with recarpet and repaint. Parking is currently not monitored at the property and at night some unsavoury people gather.

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

Good local links to supermarkets and travel links – public and private. However the volume of resturants could do with help with newly urbanisation of area.

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

.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

Public transport links as Crossrail is still currently down.
