Every year the council asks residents what they think about our local parks. During 2020 lockdown and social distancing parks have been the best place for exercise, relaxation and the place to meet friends and family.
Our local parks include: Knights Hill Wood, Norwood Park, St Luke’s church, Streatham Common and Tivoli Park.
