The most significant changes include:
Improvements have been made to the main entrances and the football pitch, along with new footpaths, seats, lighting and signage, a meadow and orchard area, three play areas – for under-5s, teens and families – and a youth shelter designed in conjunction with pupils at Deptford Green School. The entrances to the nearby New Cross (Walpole Road) underpass have been cleared of shrubbery for improved visibility, and the underpass itself now has new CCTV, and lighting designed by local artist Heather Burrell.
The project was highly commended at the 2012 Landscape Institute Awards.

Improvements along Douglas Way, outside the Albany Theatre, include new paving, seating, lighting and trees, as well as the provision of a better electrical supply for the market.
