Help shape the future of King George’s Park

Published: Friday 10th November 17

The council is creating a Management and Maintenance Plan for King George’s Park in Wandsworth and wants input from local people.

The plan will set out how the park will be improved in the future, priorities for additional maintenance and how the council can ensure local people continue to benefit from it. Residents can take part in a consultation to help establish the value that people attach to the park, how they use it and any changes they would like to see.

The park includes ornamental gardens, biodiversity habitats, a lake and riverside walk, a play area, a trim tail, sports pitches and a skatepark.

The council’s environment spokesman Cllr Jonathan Cook said: “King George’s Park is a green oasis in the heart of Wandsworth Town Centre and this plan will ensure it remains a valuable resource for our residents. We want to make Wandsworth inner London’s greenest borough, and making improvements now to our parks and open spaces that will benefit future generations is key.

“Please tell us what you like about King George and what you think could be better. The more responses we receive, the better the plan will reflect local people’s wishes.”

The consultation closes on December 17.

This is one of the safest nicest parks in London. I love the ornamental gardens, biodiversity habitats, lake and riverside walk. I often take a walk at nightime alone. And always cut across in the day.

The area closest to Knaresborough Rd is vastly under-utilised. It is used mainly by dog walkers and occasional rugby practice. I suggest it could benefit the entire community by transforming it into woodland. There are many benefits to this idea and everyone I have spoken to so far has been very positive. All parties are committed to planting more trees and this could provide a valuable resource which is not at present available. It would fulfil many of the objectives set forward by the council and in The London Plan. It would reduce pollution and be a haven for wildlife. Insect numbers have decreased by nearly 80% in the last 29 years. Suggestions to include flower meadows and a forest garden would help regenerate that part of the park.
