Brent Parks launches Phase 2 consultation on re-vamping of Roundwood Park Children's Playground

Brent Parks Service today launches its Phase 2 consultation on a play area for Roundwood Park which it claims is a result of feedback on the Phase 1 consultation.   The issue of whether the rather garish off-the-peg designs are suitable for a Grade 2 listed Victorian park is not addressed nor the option of having an adventure playground type play space  amongst the trees, so popular in non-Brent Queens Park and previously, before closure,  in Stonebridge.).  The proposed changes in the options are fairly minor.

The consultation ends on September 19th 2022.   I hope that the Service has consulted with children at neighbouring Newfield and Donnington primary schools. This worked really well for the new Chalkhill Park where Chalkhill Primary School pupils fed into the planning stage and gained a sense of ownership. Ironically the playground at the Roundwood Cafe in the park is more 'natural and shaded by trees.

The survey is here.  At present you need to scroll down for Phase 2.
