Ashburton Park Playground
Ashburton Park Playground joined GLL Community Foundation1 week ago

What we would like to do is redesign and equip our playground so that it has a different look and feel. The way we want to do this is by: 1. To improve the quality of the playground surfaces, so that it is colourful by introducing safer play surfaces and splashes of colour! 2. Our kids have different needs, so we would like to make Ashburton Park playground more inclusive, by introducing designs and play equipment, that meet the needs of as many of our kids as possible. 3. We want to introduce new and upgrade our playground equipment, so that it challenges, encourages learning and our kids become more active as a result. 4. We want our playground to become a community hub where parents and carers can socialise and offer mutual support to each other. 5. We want our playground to become a destination playspace where all of the Croydon community can visit, play and connect with each other. 6. We want our playground to be part of the wider improvements happening in the park.

Party In The Park

As the school year is ready to begin, we would like to take advantage of the last bits of summer by organising an event for families in Ravenscourt Park. We will have activities for children and adults, games, sports activities, temporary tattoos, arts and crafts activities, face painting and many more. Water and snacks will be provided during the event, and we encourage everyone to bring along a picnic and share if they wish. Please help us make this family fun day happen!

Oval green space
Oval green space joined GLL Community Foundation1 week ago

Improve the Oval green space by adding raised beds (to be filled with flowers, herbs and eventually vegetables for the community to pick and eat). Build a bug hotel, with local nursery & school involved, inviting them up for bug hunting activities. Add more trees and wildflowers.
