Following a good explore with a dozen friends late November 2015, a fair list of actions was compiled and shared with the Hounslow Council Parks Team and contractors Carillion. A record of the walk on 21.11.2015 can be seen here.
Some matters have been addressed but there is still a reasonable amount to attend to.
To progress, and with apologies to those unable to make it on a Monday morning, the parks team and contractor have agreed to meet me and anyone else able to attend, to go through the list.
Meet by the play area at 10.30 am on Monday 1 February 2016.
Whether able to make it or not, there is good news for those who had previously made requests for the installation of outdoor gym equipment in Thornbury Park.
In a drive to encourage improved participation in exercise, Hounslow Council is about to install outdoor gyms in eight locations across the borough. Osterley & Spring Grove Ward will receive two sets, here and by Osterley Sports Centre and Running Track on Wood Lane.
Suggested locations within Thornbury Park are either next to the London Road entrance or further up the path near the skate park and playground.
Regardless of whether you come on 1.2.2016, please let either me or our Sports Project Manager, Suzie Munnery know where the outdoor gym would be best placed. Suzie can be contacted on 020 8583 6835 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
As always, happy to discuss ways of improving Thornbury Park and hearing from residents who want to join the Friends of Thornbury Park group.
