Refurbished Ponders End Park opens on Monday
A refurbished park in Ponders End will open on Easter Monday with a whole host of activities to mark the event.
The Ponders End Park, formerly known as Ryan’s Park and Ponders End Recreation Ground, will benefit from a new fountain, a refurbished bandstand and better lighting and CCTV cameras.
A free Easter egg hunt will take place in the park on Monday from 1pm to celebrate its new look.
Swing band The Gershwin Gang will perform for visitors and giant Zorb balls will also be on offer for people to use.
The first Ponders End Creative Market, which is funded through the Mayor of London’s Outer London Fund, will be open to the public between 1pm and 4pm.
Stallholders will sell handmade goods such as jewellery, clothing, crafts, accessories, bags, cards and natural skin and body products.
Enfield Council's Leader, councillor Doug Taylor, said: "The new look Ponders End Park will be a fantastic facility for all of Ponders End to enjoy and is part of the multi million pound regeneration of the area.
"Enfield is one of the greenest boroughs in London and the work carried out in Ponders End Park will build on and further enhance the superb facilities we have in our parks."
The Easter in the Park event has been organised in local partnership by EBRA, Art Start, the PECDT and Enterprise Enfield.
