Croydon’s parks will be buzzing from Monday (20) with a range of free fun events for teenagers – with activities ranging from street art and football, to tile painting and cooking.
The council’s street-based youth team is working with the sustainable communities team to run the free summer activities for 13- to 19-year-olds.
Councillor Alisa Flemming, cabinet member for children, young people and learning
