Playground upgrades on the way

The two playgrounds on Clapham Common are set to see major improvements following grants approved by Lambeth Council.

Work will begin this month on the smaller of the two, the play area towards Clapham Common West Side. New surface will be laid and equipment repaired or replaced. The playground will be shut for at least two weeks while this is under way.

Onsite consultation with kids, parents and guardians on the bigger playground just off Windmill Drive – pictured – has already started and a wider consultation will begin in September.

CCMAC is working closely with Lambeth Council to ensure both refurbishments are in line with what the local community wants.
