Families are encouraged to have their say on the future of West Ham Park’s playground.

The City of London Corporation, which runs the park, is consulting on three propsals to modernise the play area.

One will simply replace any damaged or old play equipment whilst repairing the existing pieces.

The other two options will look to redesign the playground with a new water play facility, with one proposal also expanding the grassed areas and creating new entrances.

Suggestions for the water play facility include a splash pad or interactive equipment for year-round play as an alternative to the paddling pool.

To have your say, speak to the team at the playground between 4pm or 6pm on Wednesday, July 4, or between 12pm and 7pm on the weekend of July 14 and 15.

Anyone unable to attend can contribute by completing a survey at by Saturday, July 21.
