South Kilburn's new park to open this afternoon

At 12.30pm today the  Woodhouse 'urban' park will open in South Kilburn's Albert Road accompanied by festivities.  LINK

The park is smaller than its Chalkhill counter-part (see below) but has some robust high quality adventurous play equipment.

The Chalkhill Park has had a major impact on the quality of life on the Chalkhill Estate - providing a free (unusual these days) social space for the community to mingle and relax and following its carefully planning, which involved residents, caters for all ages.

It is much appreciated by local residents as 'our park' and has not seen any major vandalism, young saplings have survived and the only issues have been litter and regular maintenance.

It will be interesting to see how Woodhouse will fare situated as it is now in a mixed social area which includes new private developments.
