More than 50 residents celebrated the opening of a new park and communal space in Willesden.
The park, which is in Unity Close estate, was officially opened by the Deputy Mayor of Brent, Cllr Bobby Thomas and is the culmination of two years of hard work and fundraising.
The former rundown communal green space has been transformed into a multi-use activity park with an area for ball games, play equipment for younger children, and seating areas for the community.
The project was carried out by environmental charity Groundwork London which worked in partnership with the council and housing providers London & Quadrant, Network Stadium, Innisfree Housing Association and ASRA Housing Association.
