Repairs At Last To Children's Playground at Hammersmith Park

Repairs have come at last for the Children's Playground in Hammersmith Park, which has been in a state of disrepair for some years.

A company called Valley Landscape Management have put up fences around the damaged climbing mounds and are in the process of making some long-overdue repairs.

This burst of activity comes as a bit of a surprise since our most recent communication with the Council regarding repairs to the park met with this very vague and non-committal response:

"In terms of further improvements for the park, at present the Council does not have any funding but we are exploring a number of options and are hopeful that we will be able to deliver some improvements, including to the children’s playground, in the future."

Stanhope, the company which is redeveloping TV Centre, say that they are in talks with LBH&F to put a significant amount of money into the Park, as part of their "section 106" contribution to the local community. So, in the near future, some big improvements should turn up.

In the meantime, at least the children's playground is at last getting the repairs it deserves.

Now, if we can just stop the people who like to leave their old cigarette butts, beer cans and dog poo in the children's playground overnight, it might actually be an appealing place to take our children.
