Merton Council has been approached by an applicant wishing to set up an ice rink and other attractions in the park during the winter of 2013. Doug Napier, the council’s Greenspaces Manager, was not happy with the last such event in the park, in 2011, but he believes the current proposal is of higher quality with a ‘real ice’ skating rink, changing facilities and a German market. Nick Steiner, FOWP chairman, is circulating the application to members and associates to gauge local people’s reaction, so please let us have your thoughts. Register on the website as an Associate to see proposals.
