Help your local park win £400k!
Vauxhall Spring Gardens (pictured) and Kennington Park are two local parks in the running to receive £400 000 from the London Assembly.
However 45 other parks are in the running and only 10 parks will be successful. The winning parks will be improved in a variety of ways, ranging from better footpaths and more lighting for safety, to providing new playgrounds and facilities for children. Others will open new cafes, refurbish derelict public toilets and improve cycle routes. Many will see traditional flower gardens restored, new wildlife habitats created, and plots provided for communities to grow fruit and vegetables.
There are three ways in which votes can be registered: Online – go to www.london.gov.uk/parksvote Post – You can request a postal vote form by calling City Hall’s Public Liaison Unit on 020 7983 4100. Text – Text 'parks' and your full London post code to 62967. This will automatically vote for the nearest park on our shortlist to that post code in the same borough.
