Next steps

The Parks and Open Spaces Team plan to:

  • Task the South West London Environment Network (SWLEN) to engage with the 16 respondents who asked to be contacted about forming a new Friends Group for Heathfield Recreation Ground. SWLEN would update the Council on how the new friends group is developing.
  • Create a project specification and work with our procurement team to publish a competitive tender process for this project.
  • Launch the tender in the New Year and invite a number of companies to submit their proposal for this project. Following a review of all tender submissions we will look to award the contract to the chosen supplier and work with them through to project delivery.
  • The Council would aim to install the new outdoor gym in Spring 2019. As part of the installation the Council will hold a launch event to officially open the new outdoor gym.



As part of our continued commitment to improve our parks, we are looking to redevelop the gym at Heathfield Recreation Ground. As a result of securing additional external funding from the London Marathon Charitable Trust, we are proposing to upgrade the gym equipment at Heathfield Recreation Ground, to encourage healthy living and exercise.

Equipment would include items that are aimed at people of all ages and abilities. Some of the new equipment will be a borough first and will be specifically aimed at elderly users, to help aid mobility and co-ordination. Other items would be more conventional outdoor gym equipment.

For examples of the types of equipment that we are proposing to install, please see the document attached below or click here.
