The Renovation of Elmhurst Playground

The Renovation of Elmhurst Playground

Elmhurst Playground Association By Elmhurst Playground Association

We are a group of local parents raising funds to transform our dated playground at Elmhurst Gardens in South Woodford into somewhere safe & inspiring to play.

Woodford Delivery stage

pledged of £22,161

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

We’re a group of local parents who regularly take our children to Elmhurst Gardens playground in South Woodford and we know it desperately needs refurbishing. The playground has outdated equipment and surfacing which is heavily used due to amount of regular use. It is in urgent need of renovation, but the Council doesn't have the budget.

What we'll deliver:

  • More accessibile and versible equipment for all children
  • Replacing tired equipment with new age appropriate apparatus
  • Safe and vibrant surfacing to the playground

Why it's a great idea:

This project is to improve the playground and park for all local children and teenagers, their parents, grandparents and carers to make Elmhurst more inclusive, safer and fun for all. We want South Woodford & Woodford residents to have a park and playground that suits multiple needs, from overhauling the playground to introducing excercise equipment, sensory and accesible play and considering sporting needs such as football, basketball, scooting and skating. There is a definite appetite for this project, monitored on Survey Monkey. Our Facebook and Instagram pages have regular comments and suggestions from the local community who are excited and inspired by other London parks and playgrounds to bring ours up to scratch!

Steps to get it done:

  • Purchase & fit sensory play pieces to railings
  • Repaint and repair railing around playground
  • Repaint small twin slide
  • Replace basket swing in grassed area
  • Replace swing chains and seats in playground
  • Add boulders to grassed area
  • Add football goals/basketball hoops to tennis court
  • Add open sided shelter to raised plaform for weather shelter
  • Add table tennis table to grassed area
