Ealing Council swings into action to improve 22 playgrounds

Ealing Council is to spend £2 million renovating 22 playgrounds in parks across the borough over the next 12 months.

The Labour-run council says the improvements will include new equipment, play areas and surfacing in the playgrounds to offer a better experience for children and families and follows a number of other improvements it has made to sports facilitates in the borough.

Councillor Polly Knewstub, Ealing Council’s cabinet member for thriving communities said: “We promised to provide our residents with well-loved community sports facilities across the borough. We started with improving seven tennis courts, created the first dedicated parkour facility in the borough last year, and we are very excited that children from all ages and abilities can now enjoy five improved playgrounds in Southall, Acton and Ealing.

The 22 parks chosen for improvements over the next 12 months are:

Dean Gardens, West Ealing;  Islip Manor Park, Northolt; Northala Fields, Northolt;  Southall Manor House Grounds; Southall, Ravenor Park, Greenford;  Central Plaza, Acton; Rectory Park, Northolt;  Spikesbridge Park, Southall; Lammas Park, West Ealing; North Acton Playing Fields, Acton; Acton Park, Acton; Southall Park, Southall; Springfield Gardens, Acton;  Cerebros Gardens; Acton;  Northolt Park, Northolt; Blacklands, Greenford and Wesley Playing Fields, Park Royal.

Councillor Newstub added: “Outdoor community playgrounds are vital in providing opportunities for children of different ages to get active, while also helping them to make new friends.”
