London Borough of Croydon

During 2016, we ran our ‘Croydon talks parks’ survey to find out what people value most about parks and green spaces in our borough. Nearly 1,500 people got involved and told us what’s important, and what they would like to see improved to help these vital spaces reach their full potential.

There were five areas to give your views on

Following a Cabinet Paper that was submitted in March 2016 (You can read the full paper online for more details - Ambitious for parks and green spaces in Croydon – working with our communities), we identified five areas that we asked for your views on:

  • An exciting day out
  • Getting active
  • Nature
  • Making it pay
  • Get involved

Other ways to get involved in your local park or open space

There are many friends of park groups throughout Croydon, made up of local people with an interest in their park or wildlife, who take practical action to improve the area or investigate and advise on environmental issues.
