Hounslow Council has announced that work on a two-phase revamp of Redlees Park in Isleworth will start next month (April).
A public consultation for long-term improvements to the park will begin in May. Existing and potential park users will be asked what facilities they would like to see on the six hectare site and how these can be delivered most effectively for the community.
It will also address long-standing concerns, such as car park congestion and the deteriorating condition of the tennis courts, five-a-side pitch and other facilities.
In the shorter-term, the council has agreed to boost the current use of the park by introducing a temporary cafe and a natural play area for children by the summer. The play area, which is likely to feature balancing logs, den buildings and climbing poles, will replace the old version which was closed recently due to broken equipment.
The council is also planning a ‘major event’ at the park in the summer.
