Residents invited to give views on new playground at Park Hill Park

Croydon Council is inviting residents to join events to have their say on plans for a new playground and disabled toilets at Park Hill Park.

The council announced earlier this month that it had secured £140,000 of funding to provide a new playground and disabled toilets, to make the park more accessible, disability-friendly, and fun.

The funding will come from Section 106 obligations – money the council receives from developers for local infrastructure – and responds directly to long standing calls for disabled toilets in the popular central Croydon park.

The events will be held in partnership with Kompan, the playground equipment company designing the new playground, and residents are invited to have a look at the design proposals and give their feedback. There will also be goodie bags for kids during the sessions.

The sessions will take place at Park Hill Park playground on the following dates:

Thursday 31 August 10.30am-12.30pm

Saturday 2 September 2.30-4.30pm.

Croydon Council Executive Mayor, Jason Perry, said: “We were delighted to announce the funding to enhance Park Hill Park earlier this month. The funding will help to make the park more inclusive and widen its appeal to more people in the community. I would encourage residents to come along to these engagement sessions to see what is planned for the park and to give their own feedback.”
