Parks secure lucrative grant
Users of five Enfield parks can look forward to improved facilities after Enfield Borough Council secured a major grant.
The £50,000 bid received from ‘Fields in Trust’ will go towards a variety of projects at parks and green spaces across the borough.
Ponders End Park will have an artificial cricket pitch installed into its grounds as part of the scheme with St George’s Field in Palmers Lane, Enfield becoming home to balance beams for children.
A wildflower orchard will be fitted and renovations of the existing running track at Craig Park in Edmonton are planned to take place with Tatem and Jubilee Parks also due for upgrades to footpaths.
Councillor Chris Bond, who is responsible for envirnmental policy at Enfield Council, said: “This money will enable us to improve five of our parks and improve the already impressive facilities and attractions our open spaces offer residents.
“We are one of the greenest borough’s in London and this £50,000 investment will help improve access for visitors, and make these green spaces more welcoming.”
