Cyclists and pedestrians who use Wandle Park could benefit from big improvements if they vote for a £175,000 upgrade.
The park is one of seven places across the capital shortlisted for a share of the Mayor of London’s £900,000 Big Green Fund – and Croydon Council is urging residents to help make it happen.
If enough people vote for the park, it will get improved lighting, new zebra crossings from West Croydon station and stairs to Jubilee Bridge, plus upgrades to the entrance by Waddon New Road.
“Wandle Park is a real gem in our borough and we’re delighted our project to improve access to it has been shortlisted for the Big Green Fund award.
“Being successful depends on members of the public casting their vote, so we urge people to get behind our bid. If we were to get funding, we would be able to significantly improve access to Wandle Park from the town centre, in particular for cyclists and pedestrians, and make a real contribution to the huge regeneration already under way in Croydon.”
Councillor Kathy Bee, cabinet member for transport and environment
