Furzedown Recreation Ground Park Improvements

Closed 27 Jul 2018

Opened 15 Jun 2018

Overview

Background

We are pleased to inform you that Wandsworth Council are funding an £111,000 project to refurbish the Furzedown Rec pavilion in Autumn 2018. We plan to spend this funding making the pavilion fit for community use and this has been supported by the local community and in particular, the Friends of Furzedown Rec.

We envisage the refurbished pavilion will become a key community hub, which will be available for community groups to rent out. Following on from the work done by the Friends of Furzedown Rec over the last two years, we would like your views on what types of activities you would like to see going on in the Pavilion once the work is completed.

We would also like your views about Furzedown Recreation Ground, to help us consider how we might improve the park in the future. Although we do not currently have funding, the results of this consultation will help us gain an understanding of what the priorities are for the recreation ground, which includes the slide and the mound, to help us with our funding bids.

Why are we consulting?

  • We would like your views on what types of activities you would like to see going on in the pavilion
  • We would like to understand how you use the park, what you like about it and what improvements you think could be made
  • The mound which the playground slide sits on has become unsafe. We would like to hear your feedback on potential options for a new slide in the playground. We would then seek funding for the most popular approach, subject to a thorough assessment of the practicalities and sustainability of the option

Furzedown Big Day Out

We will also be attending Furzedown's Big Day Out at the Furzedown Recreation Ground on Saturday 16 June 2018, 12pm - 5pm, to provide an opportunity to complete the questionnaire and ask any questions you might have.

You can access the online survey below, but if you would like a paper copy, please contact us at consult@wandsworth.gov.uk 

Please be advised that this consultation closes on Friday 27 July 2018.
