Playground Equipment - Inspection and Maintenance
Westminster has a very thorough inspection and maintenance policy for its playgrounds. We believe that the safety of the users is paramount. To view the Inspection and Maintenance regime please click on the link.
The multi use games area (MUGA) is open to all users of the garden during the opening times of the garden as laid down in the byelaws.
A new wildlife area has been created at Queen's Park Gardens, which will provide a haven for birds, butterflies, bats, beetles and lots more. Created during 2007 this area contains among other benefits an outdoor classroom and composting facilities.
The wildlife garden has been designed in conjunction with the local community. Hedgerows, trees and shrubs, tall grasses, wildflowers, woodpiles, a composting area, climbers and creepers are all planned to provide birds, small mammals and insects with food shelter and places to breed.
Additional habitat will be important for the survival of the House Sparrow. Once a common and numerous bird in London, and now in dramatic decline (decline of 85 % from 1975 to 1995), Queen's Park Gardens supports one of only four known colonies in Westminster.
Use of the gardens by Community Groups and Local Schools
Local schools and community groups will be able to use the outdoor classroom in the wildlife area for teaching and nature conservation activities and learn more about the wildlife that surrounds them by reading information boards at points along the footpath.
To book a time slot for your group on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 10am and 3pm please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
