Community Square (with ping pong table) in Paignton Park
We have been given free Geraniums by the Council Parks Dept, which we have planted in the Community Square, as well as lavender along the meadow at the back. We will shortly be planting more bulbs.
There are now dual-waste bins for recycling and general. We have new orange bags for collecting recyclable materials, as well as the usual green ones.
The park was created about 40 years ago as part of the wider redevelopment of the area. It was further developed with work by the Friends of Paignton Park, Haringey Council Parks Dept and funding from the New Deal for Communities (now The Bridge Renewal Trust), who also built the Triangle Children, Young People and Community Centre on the edge of the park. Haringey Parks Dept maintains a Management Plan for Paignton Park. First awarded the prestigious Green Flag Award in 2010, the park has kept it ever since.
Paignton Park has a playground, community square, fruit tree meadow, large grassy area encircled by a path with trees and shrubs.
