Gidea Park is situated in the North West Area of The London Borough Of Havering. The library is in Balgores Lane, just around the corner from Gidea Park Station (opened 1910), which provides easy access to London and East Anglia.

Commuting via road, the library is a short drive from both the A127 and the A12 where they meet at Gallows Corner junction.

Gidea Park is a small branch library which offers various events and clubs throughout the year, along with free internet access. The library was closed for four months in 2005 to be refurbished.

Gidea Park is a mainly residential area situated between Romford Town Centre and Hornchurch. The area incorporates the Romford Garden Suburb, including the exhibition houses of 1911 and the Romford Golf Club, which were built on the grounds of the original Gidea Hall.

Gidea Park served by the National Express East Anglia Rail line and has bus services to nearby Romford, Harold Hill, Harold Wood, Hornchurch, South Hornchurch and Rainham.

Local open spaces include Haynes Park, Lodge Farm Park and Raphael Park.
