We asked

We asked you for feedback on our design proposals to improve the play area in Clapton Square.  

You said

24 local children, young people and families fed into the design process, helping to shape a set of designs to take out to public consultation. A further 101 people fed back on the design proposals, which included installing new equipment and creating a new entrance and a pathway.

Read the consultation report

We did

As a result of the consultation we are introducing more challenging equipment for older children. We are also reviewing the amount of sand on site, the surfacing underneath equipment, the design of the climbable entrance and solutions to make the shelter more welcoming and less of a focus for anti social behaviour.  

Work will start in autumn 2022.


In 2020 we developed a new 10 year Parks and Green Spaces Strategy, which includes a commitment to investing in and improving the borough's parks and to working with children, young people and their families to improve them. 

So far in 2021 we have already started work to consult and engage people on projects to improve play in Clissold Park and Clapton Pond and funding has also been approved for a further four sites: Butterfield Green, Clapton Square, Haggerston Park and Stoke Newington Common.

Why your views matter

Our plans for Clapton Square include installing new equipment and creating a new entrance and a pathway. 

If you live around Clapton Square or use the play area we’d love your feedback to help shape the final set of designs for the play area. 

Due to the current social distancing restrictions we aren’t able to run design and feedback sessions with children, families and schools in the way we usually do. If you have children in your home we’d love to hear what they think of the designs. Please include their views when completing the survey.

Please take time to view the designs before completing the survey by clicking on the link below.
