Friends Falkland Fairfax Open Space
A noticeboard could be positioned near to the main entrance describing how the park was created in the 1940’s.Out of the ashes of the bomb comes beauty.Consult Hornsey Historical Society for details and other salient local facts of interest. This board provides community updates on what’s happening with local events etc. Also I think a canopy(modern lightweight non obtrusive elegant ) should be included to provide some shelter from heavy showers enabling users to stay in the park until these subside. This canopy could be integrated with some simple seating provision below.Trees and plants could have identifying tags though these could be included within the noticeboard.
Thanks Paul. I’ll pass these on to Groundwork.
That’s interestiung Paul. I hadn’t realised that the space had been created by a bomb. If anyone knows more about it, it would be of interest to the members of the local Harringay website at http://harringay.ning.com/.
There were Nissan huts installed after the war. I believe they were there for some time.
