Wimbledon gardens to get £1 million revamp

Plans are unveiled for South Park Gardens, which is the recipient of Heritage Lottery Fund grant

The Grade II-listed park will get improved planting and paths, ornate railings and gates, renovated toilets, a restored fountain and new seating, bins and information boards if the plan, from The Friends of South Park Gardens (FSPG) in Wimbledon, London, goes through. Land Use Consultants helped prepare a bid for 90 per cent of the costs to the Heritage Lottery Fund. Merton council pledged the rest. - A Henley Centre report shows that lottery money is increasingly being spent on small projects rather then large capital projects.
