Chalkhill Park - Good news

Here is a good news from Brent, for Chalkhill residents in particular!

I arranged a meeting for Chalkhill Residents Association, who have been concerned about the park not being built, along with a proposed MUGA (Multi-Use Games Area) in St David's Close on the estate. Representative from the local Residents Association, School and Councillors attended the meeting, and the Brent Council officer assured us that the park and other facilites will be built, and the opening of the park will be in 2012.

The park will have children's play area, one for older and one for younger, plus an exercise area for adults. See below the general plan and layout of the park:

  Some questions were raised about the "water feature". Officers explained if the water feature is not desirable and turns out to be expensive, it will be not into the project.

The Head of Parks and Sports Services is keen to talk to residents about St. David's Close open space and its future use. The following will be looked into:
  • Installation of goal posts for football
  • Restoration of BMX cycling course
  • Provision of skateboarding facilities
  • Restoration of football pitches and flood-lights at Poplar Grove.
