The North Finchley Town Team has been granted £18,000 from the Mayor of London’s Pocket Park fund to transform Percy Road Park into an exciting new green space.
This is on top of the £65,000 Barnet Council awarded the project which was announced earlier this year. It is expected that the makeover will be completed in March 2015.
The new park will feature a new multi-functional play-area, new seating areas and more greenery.
Darren Shea, North Finchley Town Team Chair, said: “We wanted to create a green space for the town that everybody can enjoy. From children playing after school, to local workers eating their lunch and elderly people having a place to relax, we wanted to produce a community space that everyone can have a part to play in.”
