Community Parks Programme

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

As part of our ongoing work to improve and enhance our green spaces, we're investing £1.3million in our borough's parks. So far, through our Community Parks programme we have delivered a range of improvement works including footpath resurfacing, playground makeovers and the installation of outdoor gyms in eight green spaces across the borough.

We are delighted that we will now be transforming four more playgrounds: Cromwell Avenue Open Space and Manor Park in New Malden, Kingston Road Recreation Ground in Kingston and Woodview in Chessington. Please take a look at the proposed plans by clicking on the below links:

Our parks have been of vital importance throughout the pandemic, providing access to green space for fresh air, contemplation and exercise, benefiting both physical and mental health.
