Vote for the Wandle in Croydon

The London Borough of Croydon is asking the public to vote for their favourite park in Croydon.  A total of £1.5 million will be divided up between the top choices and you’ll be able to have a say in how that money is spent. You don’t have to be a Croydon resident to vote but each person can only vote once.

Wandle Park, Croydon

We are hoping that Wandle Park will be amongst the winners as the funding will help to bring the River Wandle, which is currently culverted under the park, back to the surface.  Some money has already been secured for this (e.g. through the Mayor’s Parks’ funding) but more is needed for it to become a reality.

There are other parks along the Wandle and its tributary the Norbury Brook (Norbury Park, Thornton Heath Recreation Ground and Waddon Ponds) and we would like to encourage people voting for these parks to suggest that any winnings include plans to improve the river or brook.

You can read more about the ‘Parks to be Proud of’ competition and place your vote here before 24th December.
