An 18-ha park in South Harrow officially reopened this summer, following a nine-month restoration programme.
The work at Newton Park included flood defence upgrades, newly constructed wetlands and river restoration. It now boasts better facilities and access for the community with footpaths, bridges, four wetlands and more diverse wildlife habitats.
The park was officially opened by the leader of the council Graham Henson and the mayor of Harrow Kareema Marikar in July, joined by school children from nearby Newton Farm. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was followed by the planting of 500 aquatic plants, water testing, activities and information displays, tours and refreshments.
