As part of our ongoing work to improve and enhance our green spaces, we are investing £1.3 million in our borough's parks.
The project will be used to improve accessibility in our parks and playgrounds, with the introduction of new entrance points, paths, playground and gym equipment.
We have completed our consultation on the design proposals for three more playgrounds in the borough and thanks to your great input we have adapted our plans and the final designs are now available:
For the works, our contractors have installed safety measures to protect their workforce and revised their health and safety processes in line with the latest COVID-19 Government and Public Health England guidance.

PATHWAY UPGRADE WORKS
Please be advised that pathway works at Elmbridge Avenue Open Space will begin on Monday 27 July 2020. Works will take approximately four weeks and should be complete by 24 August 2020
This will provide a new surfaced pathway which will improve accessibility during the winter months and wet periods; along with providing opportunities for different types of public use and wheelchair access.
Please be aware that for the first week of the project the whole path will be shut and there will be no public access. Please use alternative routes around the site while these works are carried out.
After the first week of works is completed until 3 August the footpath will be reopening again in phases.
Please be aware of safety/closure notices and part closures on existing path
