Wandsworth Guardian has reported today how the Council are looking to close all three of their adventure playgrounds (York Gardens, Kimber Road Gardens and Battersea Park).
Earlier this year the Council was looking to start charging children to use the Adventure Playground in Battersea park. But facing widespread opposition from a number of community campaigns including the Battersea Liberal Democrats the Council withdrew their plans.
Local Lib Dem Richard Davis says,
“At a time when the Council is looking at the causes of the riots they should not be closing services for children in the area. It is outrageous that Wandsworth is seeking to cut services for those most in need of them at a time of such economic hardship.”
