In 2014, we submitted a stage 1 bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for the regeneration of Beckenham Place Park through the Parks for People programme.
The Heritage Lottery Fund's Parks for People programme is focused on getting more local people to use regenerated open spaces.
The HLF approved the bid and earmarked £4.9m to invest in Beckenham Place Park. We worked up designs for the park with local people and submitted our final stage 2 bid to the Fund in August 2016.
We are now on site carrying out extensive restoration of the landscape and historic buildings, which will be complete in spring 2019.
There are plans for many new sport and leisure activities including:
5km running route within the park
all weather and walking rails giving better access for those with limited mobility and for buggies
open water swimming
a new BMX track and better cycling facilities
enhanced skate park
lots of space for informal sports, eg football, cricket and rounders.
Other new and improved features and facilities include:
restored natural lake
wet woodland area
a new cafe in the restored listed stable block
new toilets in the east and west sides of the park
an education centre
a volunteering hub
two new children's play areas
community food growing.
