Deptford Park masterplan and farmers' market

The next Farmers' Market in Deptford Park will be held on Sunday 27 April from 10am to 3pm. I didn't get to the first one, and I'm not sure if there have been any since (if so, their promotion of the event has been very lacking) but I'm going to try and get along to the next one, to check it out.

There will also be a stall hosted by Groundwork, the organisation that is carrying out the redevelopment of the park, so if you want to know more about what is planned, this would be your opportunity to find out. The first phase of the works was 'tree works' (presumably trimming or felling) and this was carried out in February. The second phase involves realisation of 'the avenue' element of the masterplan, which will mean improving the Evelyn Street entrance to the park, and presumably making the park more visible to people passing on the main road. A larger surfaced area will be created, for functions, events, social activities and so on, and lighting will be installed to 'enliven' the frontage of the park.
There will be a new meeting place and circulation point with seating and planting, and signage will be improved.

A couple of artist's impressions are also available. I have to say they don't exactly inspire enthusiasm! Let's hope the finished article is a bit more dynamic!
