Green space gains in Cumberland Park

A disused green space in Enfield has been transformed through a vital makeover to promote good health and wellbeing within the community.

Cumberland Park in Lower Edmonton had its winding paths cleared and garden area re-planted for the summer, following a consultation with neighbouring residents at Graham and Cumberland House. 

Large granite boulders will be installed in the grass area of the green space to encourage natural play.

Councillor Guney Dogan, Enfield Council’s cabinet member for environment, said: “We recognise the importance of outdoor space in promoting improved health and wellbeing.

“Urban green spaces help with social inclusion within communities. The response from the neighbourhood to this project has been fantastic and I am glad to see that there is now a well-kept, beautiful, green space for local people to enjoy.”

The revamped park officially opened in May, and while the council is maintaining the area it is searching for local groups interested in community gardening.
