Clissold Park User Group By Clissold Park User Group

We plan to install three new swings for babies and toddlers in our playground so kids can spend less time queuing and more time swinging.

Hackney Delivery stage

£1,020
pledged of £8,783

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

Clissold Park is at the heart of Stoke Newington attracting over 3 millions visitors each year. We have a fantastic children's playground but the one problem is that we don't have enough swings. There are only three and we would like to double the number by installing three additional baby swings and moving the seesaw to make room for them.

What we'll deliver:

  • We will arrange for the three new swings to be installed
  • We will move the seesaw to a different place to make room for the swings

Why it's a great idea:

Parents and kids have told us they are fed up queuing for the swings. More swings means more fun for everyone.

Steps to get it done:

  • Contract with play equipment company to install swings
  • Hold an event to celebrate the new swings and promote through local press
