Montrose Playing fields in Burnt Oak, london, is host to football pitches as well as a basketball area.
The park, which includes some fine unusual and a few rare trees is in desperate need of a more of a safer community feel. Also of note is the Silkstream, flowing on its way to the Welsh Harp (Brent Reservoir), and providing a valuable wildlife resource.
Providing a cafe, will give reason for parents to come and relax whilst watching their children play football. It will lend itself to making the park, which currently can be seen as quite 'rough', feel safer and family orientated.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
The playing fields, which is a part of London town Burnt Oak, is subject to a community in desperate need of hope within the community.
On almost every index of deprivation, Burnt Oak ranks the highest in the borough and it is the most densely populated. As a consequence, Barnet council has targeted the locality for numerous regeneration efforts. This project is an attempt at a start of community building and rejuvenation, by improving the public spaces which are already used so regularly.
