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.

Cllr Mary Arnold, Kilburn ward, said: "It has been a long time coming to get this place modernised and I hope it will give people the opportunity to take part in the healthy recreation and play they are entitled to."
Money is coming from different strands with Brent Housing Partnership (BHP) putting an amount in along with �20,000 from the Government's Play builder scheme and a further �20,000 from the Kilburn Neighbourhood Working fund.

Brent Council was handed �1 million by the Government to improve play areas in the borough and has earmarked 20 sites to use it on.
Kimberley Road is one of those to receive funding and people are now being asked to take part in any upcoming consultation into what could take its place.
