Furzedown Recreation Ground and Pavilion Online Consultation

We would like to hear your views about Furzedown Recreation Ground, to help us consider how we might improve the park in the future.

Why are we consulting?

• We would like to understand how you use the park, what you like about it and what improvements you think could be made

• 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 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 are also consulting to get your views on what you would like to see going on in the pavilion once the work is completed.

• 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.

You can access the online survey at the below address from Friday 15 June 2018.

Please be advised that this consultation closes at 11:59pm on Friday 27 July 2018.

Furzedown’s Big Day Out Event

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

Bowling Pavilion Refurbishment

The pavilion was originally built to house the bowls club until it disbanded in 2016, after which time it has fallen into a state of disrepair. We have identified the pavilion as a valuable asset to bring back into community use, which has been supported by the local community and in particular, the Friends of Furzedown Rec.

We have now secured funding of £111,000 to do basic remedial work in order to bring the pavilion up to a state where it is fit for community use. The work includes the following: –
• External repair or replacement works to roof, rainwater gutters, brickwork, entrance doors and windows
• Internal finishing, plastering and decoration
• Refurbishment of the men’s and women’s toilets and changing rooms, including the addition of a disabled toilet
• Installation of a heating system
• Upgrade to electrical services and installation of fire and smoke alarm system
• Refurbishment of kitchen facilities to enable basic use for hot drinks and cold food preparation

We envisage the pavilion becoming a key community hub which will be available for community groups to rent out. Maintenance and bookings will be managed by Enable Leisure and Culture.



Garratt Park Playground and Ball Court Consultation

Opened 12 July 2018
Closes 6 September 2018

Garratt Park Playground and Ball Court Online Consultation

We want to hear how you use and value Garratt Park Playground and the ball court in order to guide how we move forward with improving the park.

In July 2016 money was awarded from Wandsworth Local Fund (WLF) to a scheme to resurface the play area in Garratt Park and incorporate a tree root barrier membrane to limit the damaging effects of the boundary poplars on the playground. Subsequent investigative work to deliver this project has made it clear that there is a need to redesign and re-equip the entire play space at the same time to improve inclusive play opportunities and address how the playground sits within the wider park and is accessible for all.

Through this consultation we want to find out how you currently use the playground, what you like about it and what you think could be improved.

We also want to understand better how the ball court is used in Garratt Park and if there is any demand for changing or developing the current facilities.

We are also asking about what people think of the blue shelter, the table tennis table and the cycle track.
The results of this consultation will then be used to inform an additional funding proposal to deliver improvements to the play and recreation facilities in Garratt Park.
