Fishponds Playing Fields open every day 8am-6pm 18th July to 6th September Hebdon Road SW17 7NW It’s great news that Fishponds Playing Fields in Hebdon Road will be open to the public every day this summer from 8am to 6pm. This will give a much needed new area of green space in a part of Tooting that severely lacks it. There will be new play equipment with a natural timber look. Access will run from 18th July to 6thSeptember.
Thanks go to the Council, and to our Tooting Ward councillors, Annamarie Critchard, James Daley and Paul White, who have kept up the pressure to open the fields for wider community use, together with our MP, Dr Rosena Allin-Khan.
The play equipment is suitable for children aged between 2 and 11 and includes a climbing tower with slide, a play boat and an activity trail with a ‘wobble log’ bridge, stepping stones, parallel bars and a balance beam. It’s made from recycled plastics and has a natural timber look.
Dogs are not permitted on the playing fields at any time.
Outside the hours above, the playing fields will remain locked
What next for Fishponds?
This arrangement is for this summer only. It’s a welcome step but we need to build on it.
We hope you’ll make active use of the fields during the summer, and show how much it matters for individuals and families to have green space close at hand. As we go forward, community support will be vitally important.
