Pavilion which is an ‘outdoor classroom’ is unveiled in Wembley park

Structure in Brent River Park in Tokyngton is part of a regeneration project in the area

A pavilion which outlines the dangers of climate change while offering residents a place to shelter has been installed in a Wembley park.

The Climate Pavilion has taken pride of place in Brent River Park in Tokyngton as part of a regeneration project.

The pavilion, which was suggested by the Friends of Brent River Park, has a sustainable urban drainage system for when the park experiences flooding.

The structure can also be used by Brent schools as an outdoor classroom for pupils to study and understand climate change and environmental issues in a natural setting.

Groundwork London, an environmental regeneration charity, secured funding for the pavilion in 2009 and it was developed by Brent Council.

It was unveiled by Cleao Oji, a 10-year-old pupil from Oakington Manor School in nearby Oakington Manor Drive, at a ceremony attended by fellow year five students.
