Green Pond Road was a stadium in Walthamstow, London. This was Walthamstow Avenue F.C.'s ground for many years until they merged with Leytonstone & Ilford to form Redbridge Forest, a precursor to Dagenham & Redbridge. The stadium's record attendance was 21,708 for Turkey v China in the 1948 Summer Olympics football tournament.[1][2] The ground was often simply called 'The (Green) Pond'.

The last game played at Green Pond Road was the last game of the 1988/89 season (on Saturday 13 May 1989), when Leytonstone/Ilford defeated Farnborough Town 5-3. Leytonstone had finished the season as Champions of the Isthmian League Premier Division, with Farnborough in second place.
