Comment on playground improvement plans

Published: Friday 19th October 18

Help shape the final design of a revamped playground on Wandsworth Common.

How the playground looks now

Users of St Mark’s Playground were asked earlier this year what sort of new equipment they would like, and three design options were drawn up. Now local people are being asked to help decide which one is best.

Because the playground is on common land, the style and height has to be sympathetic to the area, and should be suitable for the children aged 8 and under.

There will also be two drop-in sessions where you can learn more and ask questions at St Mark’s Church, SW11 1EJ – use the entrance on Boutflower Road.

The consultation closes on Sunday 18 November 2018.

The playground revamp is one of several playground improvements being funded from the Wandsworth Local Fund – a charge the council makes on developers to pay for infrastructure improvements. You can download a report on the fund and the schemes it has funded here.

Wandsworth parks and open spaces are managed by Enable Leisure and Culture on behalf of the council.

It would be great to have the swings like at Whitney way playground in Putney, I’ve never enjoyed taking my son to the park so much! Also agree with the other comment about benches.

This play ground is used by a wide variety of ages. Currently there are only play area for very little children. A wider age range of equipment would be preferable. Wooden constructions which allow for several children playing together rather than just 1 child at a time.On Sunday there may be 120 children coming out of church. some seats for grandparents , parents useful.A rubbish bin before entering the play area, and hooks to safely tie up dogs would also be useful.
