Optivo Housing Association own an open space in north-east Croydon. It’s currently a play park but has been closed due to anti-social behaviour. From consulting with residents they’re aware that as a play park, it only serves a small fraction of the community. Before re-opening the space they are exploring options to make it more accessible to all.

Initial ideas have been along the lines of a community garden/ allotment… But they would like to reach out to local community organisations who may have better ideas and who may even be interested in using the space.

If you have any thoughts or if you would be interested in using it, please email Isabel.Bourne@optivo.org.uk by 5pm on Monday 17 May 2021.
