We have been discussing possible improvements to Overton Park. It is not in our Ward but adjacent, so much used by many of our residents.
The park is mainly given over to playing fields, with a pavilion and a children’s play area. It is well used by joggers. It was in the distant past the playing fields of the London County Council and passed to Sutton Council when Mrs Thatcher abolished the LCC. It is flat and might be improved by tree planting or perhaps more daffodil bulbs. Sadly, some trees planted last year were vandalised. Might the metal “trim trail” equipment spread around the park be better used if it was brought together at one place?
We would like to invite ideas. Do contact us if you have a view, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
