Work begins on our first permanent park
June 25, 2021
The creation of Brent Cross Town’s first permanent park has now begun at Claremont Park.
Claremont Park will open in spring 2022, featuring benches and picnic tables, a pond with a decked platform, extensive trees and other planting, grassed areas for informal play, and an amphitheatre for small scale community events. A series of paths will guide visitors around the park with a kiosk and public toilets providing necessary amenities.
Play is a key feature of the park, with an exciting playground at its centre. Climbing structures will encourage children into the treetops, whilst swings, roundabouts, and slides will occupy the less adventurous. Water play is also provided with pumps and sand pits. Sporting activities are also encouraged with a basketball hoop and scooter and skate area as well.
Claremont Park, which is being built at Claremont Open Space, shows the vision for a green park town in north London. Brent Cross Town will offer more public open space than before the Brent Cross Cricklewood regeneration programme began. There will be around 50 acres of playing fields, including seven new and improved parks and eight public squares, offering inspiration for play, health and leisure opportunities, and socialising.
Access between Brent Terrace and Clitterhouse Crescent will always be maintained during this work via a new footpath was created earlier this year.
