Weʼre raising £10,000 to help fund a new playground in Wanstead Park
- Wanstead Park, London
Don't have time to donate right now?
We are fundraising to purchase play equipment for a new playground in Wanstead Park.
The overall aim of the playground project is to provide a variety of stimulating natural play opportunities for 2-10 year old children with a range of abilities, to develop physical, social and emotional skills through exploration and interaction.
Aldersbrook is identified in the Redbridge Local Plan as an area of play deprivation; children must get on a bus to access a play area. Aldersbrook Primary School has higher levels of obesity compared to national averages. The new play area will directly benefit the physical health of local children and offer a gateway to natural play in Wanstead Park.
The new play area will benefit local children and their parents/carers, by offering a safe, dog-free, social gathering place to encourage greater physical activity, free of charge. It will be a focus for families that currently underuse Wanstead Park, by providing a starting point for exploring the wider park. The new play area will encourage creative and natural play, engaging the next generation of young people in nature conservation. Children will benefit from increased time outdoors in a natural environment, with benefits to the mental health of both children and their parents/carers.

Thank you so much to everyone that came to the family bike ride last week and to everyone who has given so generously to help support the playground. I'm very happy to update that work started on site last week, and we also had the brilliant news on Friday that we have been successful in securing some Lottery funding to further support the purchase of new play equipment. Epping forest have advised us that the timber used is all from trees that have either fallen down naturally or that they have had to fell as part of tree safety works.
