Swaby Gardens Playground: Public Consultation Results
Wandsworth Council are redesigning the existing junior playground in Swaby Gardens and recently asked local residents for their view as to which design should be built in the space. By popular vote, the winning design is option one which combines a ship-themed multi-play with ropes, nets, lookout towers and a slide.
Funding of up to £163,000 was secured from NCIL (Neighbourhood Community Infrastructure Levy) to refurbish the junior playground and move the toddler play equipment to be part of the new design. Wandsworth Council secured NCIL funding from development projects in the local areas and invests the funding in local community facilities.
The purpose of the refurbishment is to:
- Redesign the layout and join the junior and toddler playgrounds.
- Provide an accessible playground for children of all abilities.
- Provide exciting play equipment that has; climbing, swinging, rotating, sliding, balancing and stretching features.

- Create a place for social interactions, to help children learn how to negotiate, cooperate, compete and resolve conflicts.
