The campaign for a large new park to be created using currently unloved land surrounding the Banbury Reservoir is gathering pace. In addition to an ongoing survey seeking people's ideas, a "community hub" meeting has been organised for Thursday 28th September.

Community Hub: A new park for Edmonton?

Thursday 28 September 10.00am - 4.00pm

Fore Street Library (Living Room Library), 109 - 111 Fore St N18 2XF

Campaign for a major new community park

In the south east of Edmonton, surrounding Banbury Reservoir and the Lee Navigation Canal, there's a lot of unloved land which is unsuitable for housing but ideal for a big local park. We need your help to tell us what you think the park should include if it went ahead.

Come and tell us your views

Join our Community Hub on Thursday, September 28th at Fore Street Living Room Library, where will be discussing the lack of green space in Edmonton and what we can do, including proposing a brand new park in the Banbury Reservoir area.

The day will last from 10.30 am until 4.00 pm and will be organised around several sessions with speakers leading each session with a short introduction followed by engagement with those attending on what needs to be done.

  • What’s a country park and why do we need one?
  • What is Banbury Reservoir Park?
  • Allotments and community gardens in your local park
  • Blue and green spaces for health and well-being
  • Cycling and Walking connections to communities and their homes
  • Water and wetlands (river, canal, reservoir) and adaptation to the climate emergency

Everyone is welcome to attend the whole day or drop into the sessions that interest them. We will publish more about each session soon.
