Show our parks some love

Merton celebrated Love Parks Week by asking local residents what they thought made their park special.

Cheeky Rain Wolfe, 9, said: “The best thing about the summer holidays is that I can go to the park most days.

“I never get bored when I’m outside and can’t wait to try out the new scooter park in Mostyn Gardens.”

Merton Council offers more than 100 parks, open spaces and recreation grounds including several paddling pools and interactive water play areas.
