Greenwich park reopened after extensive renovation

A park has re-opened to the public after extensive renovation funded by a council.

Following renovation works, Charlton Park playground in Cemetery Lane has re-opened to the public, marking the completion of an extensive improvement programme, funded by Greenwich council.

As well as new playground equipment, paths around the park have been repaired, additional seating and bins are now in place and the listed wall has been strengthened.  

Charlton Park renovation is part of Greenwich council’s £1million investment, to improve 11 parks across the borough.

The funding, promised in 2020, was invested into aesthetic improvements, improvements to surfaces, added accessible playground equipment and transformed existing facilities such as the new wildlife pond in Rockliffe Gardens. 

The parks selected for investment and the improvements made where chosen following a consultation with residents.

Greenwich councillor Adel Khaireh said: “ I am thrilled to say that we have delivered our promise. These works are now complete, ready for families across the borough to enjoy this summer.  

“We know that our parks and open spaces contribute to the mental and physical wellbeing of our residents and these improvements will make them more accessible to our residents. My thanks go out to all the friends of parks groups who have supported this project.”
