Potters Fields Park Management Trust are in discussions with Southwark Council about taking over the management responsibility of St John’s Church Yard, to run it as a community park.
Riverside were responsible for the initial improvements to this space, but complained when plans didn't go far enough.
We feel that this unique space should be transformed into a play area along the lines of Coram's Fields in central London.
We would like to see a new adventure playground at St John’s Church Yard to include:
swings; large slides; rocks to climb on (similar to those at St Katharine Docks); a model of Tower Bridge for balancing and walking across (with perhaps a blue cement path representing the River); a big Tower of London climbing frame surrounded by swing boats; a paddling pool; a 'growing area' for children without a garden to use; larger swings for the elderly, disabled or parents together with babies to use.
A public meeting to get ideas on what local people would like to see at St John’s Churchyard was held on:
