Geraldine Mary Harmsworth park consultation

Closed 12 Jun 2016

Opened 9 May 2016

Feedback expected 30 Jun 2016


Please note: There were some technical difficulties with this survey so we have extended the deadline until 12 June.

We are planning to upgrade Geraldine Mary Harmsworth (GMH) Park, and we are seeking your views on what improvements we could make.

Our vision is for the park to be open and welcoming for local residents and visitors to the Imperial War Museum (IWM London). 

We want to:

- encourage better use of space, as some areas of the park are currently underused

- create visual links across the park through the use of a more coherent palette of planting and materials

- make circulation around the park easier

- find a balance of facilities for all park users

- ensure that changes are easy to maintain within existing budgets.

This survey offers you the opportunity to write down your ideas throughout, but please feel free to skip any questions which you do not feel are relevant for you.

We will use your comments from this first stage of consultation to create an initial design for the park. We will then hold a second stage of consultation during Autumn 2016 to get your views on this design before making any final decisions. The master plan for the park will be finalised in Winter 2016.
