Love your local park? Tell the council...

Wandsworth Council is looking for your views on local parks. We're lucky to have a few dotted around Earlsfield so if you have an opinion on how you'd like to see them looked after, let the council know. They say:

The parks development team wants local people’s views to help draw up plans to improve each of the small parks across the borough, and to ensure they are being properly managed.

There are 25 parks in total. You do not have to live near the park, or use it every day. Even if you just visit once a week, or pass through it on your route to work, your views will be useful. 

As well as giving your opinion, you can sign up to stay in touch with news and developments in your local park. 

The council’s environment spokesman, Cllr Jonathan Cook, said: “We are keen to ensure that as well as our large, high-profile, parks, Wandsworth’s smaller parks remain important oases in the heart of their communities, and provide a space where local people can have fun and relax. 

”Let us know how you use your local park, if you feel they could be improved, and how well you think they are managed. This will enable us to draw up plans to make them even better.”

The survey will run until August 31. 

To take part follow the links from www.wandsworth.gov.uk/consult. There will also be posters put up in the parks with a QR code you can scan.
