A run-down park is in line for an expensive facelift after funding for a new play area was secured.
Kimberley Road Park in Kimberley Road, Kilburn, has long been left to rack and ruin but could soon be reborn as an all round play park.
The current playground is due to be bulldozed some time after April with a new modern play area put up in its place.
