London, Evergreen

Evergreen Play Association was built on a former wasteground and stonemason's hut in the early 1970s and was set up by local parents.


The site used to be flat but there are now a variety of areas including mounds, a small wooded zone and a garden. A children's committee was formed to gather ideas for the playground, mapping pathways and working with architects to plan treehouses and other adventure play structures. There is now a Skyden, a Rocket and an aerial runway. Bees are kept at the playground and their honey is sold locally.


As of 2002 Evergreen has been integrated for disbled children.
