Funding joy over parks schemes

by Jim Dunton Tue 20 August 2013, 12:01 pm

Five borough parks are set to benefit from sports, play and nature improvements after Enfield Council won a funding bid from charity Fields in Trust.

The trust - which was formerly known as the National Playing Fields Association - has awarded the authority £50,000 for a range of work.

It will see a new artificial cricket pitch installed at Ponders End Park; new play equipment for children at St George’s Field; footpath improvements at Tatem Park; a planting project at Craig Park; and the creation of a new nature area at Jubilee Park, along with information boards explaing the habitats.

Councillor Chris Bond, Enfield’s environment lead, said the successful funding bid would be a boost for each venue.

“This money will enable us to improve five of our parks and improve the already impressive facilities and attractions our open spaces offer residents," he said.
