Cricklewood Play Area to get £40,000 makeover
A play area in Cricklewood is set to have a £40,000 makeover as part of a new initiative to transform underused urban spaces in the capital.
The money will be spent on providing Cricklewood Play Area with trees, shrubs, seats and paths, as well as a new children’s play area, picnic tables, and a communal gardening space.
Mother-of-three Eimear Vallely, of Cricklewood Railway Terraces, said: “This is such great news for our children. I am very happy that this concrete playground is being given the chance to blossom into a green and beautiful place for our little ones to enjoy.
“My three under-fives will be so excited to have somewhere lovely to play.”
The Mayor of London’s Pocket Parks initiative is taking place across London, with £2million allocated for the scheme.
