As the first shoots of spring appear in Agnes Riley Park your ward councillors have been working to bring further improvements to the green space.
During the winter the new pond was opened by Lambeth Mayor Neeraj Patil and now local councillors Ed Davie, Diana Morris and Lib Peck are using some of this year’s ward purse money to bring the women’s changing rooms back into use after years of being used as a storage space.
Working with the Friends of Agnes Riley Park and others, Thornton’s councillors invested in developing the pond as a haven for wildlife and a great new area for children to play and learn about the environment.
Now they want to ensure that everyone gets the best out of the park by clearing the changing rooms and redecorating them.
Ed said: “A few years ago Agnes Riley Park was practically derelict now thanks to the hard work and investment of local people and councillors it is a well used space with great facilities like the sports pitches, community garden and playground. Adding the pond and updating the changing rooms will help to make sure it continues to be improved for the good of the community.”
