On your parks, get set, go for public consultation on Central Park, Harold Hill

The first public consultation on Harold Hill’s Central Park is this Monday (September 3).

Residents are invited to Harold Hill Library at 12noon to have their say on what they do or don’t like about the park. Local opinion will inform how the council develops the site.

Improvements to the park will be paid for by selling land on Gooshays Drive.

There is a paper survey available at Myplace, Harold Hill Library, Harold Hill Community Association, the Briar Information Shop and Central Park Leisure Centre, and an online version at www.surveymonkey.com/s/haroldhillcentralpark.

Local historian Don Tait said: “Back in 1955 the park had tennis courts, a miniature golf course, a caf�, football and cricket pitches and a children’s play area.

“Throughout the years the park has been host to dog shows, carnivals, travelling fairs, cricket and football matches and the annual Harold Hill Festival. I am looking forward to finding out what ideas people come up with.”

Future consultations will take place in the library on September 13 from 2pm, September 18 from 10am, September 26 from 2pm and October 5 from 2pm.
