Play time at The Pleasance

Published: 18 September 2018

The Pleasance green space in Putney is getting improvements to its play area plus a string of nature sessions for children.

The Postcode Community Trust has awarded £7,373 to Enable Parks, on behalf of Wandsworth Council.

This project, worked up with The Pleasance Play Group, will see a new basket swing in the current play space plus play sessions based around a nature theme such as bug hunts and leaf art. There will also be engagement with the local community and schools around how they use the Pleasance and what play opportunities they would like to see there in the future.

These sessions will be delivered by Barry and Marlon from London Play and the information gathered will feed into a wider funding application in 2019 which may include improved play facilities.

Nature Sessions will be on The Pleasance, near the play area on the following dates:

  • Friday Sept 28, 11 am-noon and 3pm-4pm 
  • Saturday Oct 6,  noon-1pm 
  • Tuesday Oct 16, 11 am-noon 
  • Monday Oct 22, 11am-noon, and 2pm 3pm 

The council’s open spaces spokesman Cllr Steffi Sutters said: “Please come down, meet new people in your community and tell us what improvements you would like to see to the play space in this small but popular local park.”
