Willesden park undergoes welcomed transformation
Makeover paid for by Government funding allocated two years ago
A park once blighted by crime has been re-opened for children in Willesden.
The green space, in Villiers Road, had become a hotspot for vandalism and anti-social behaviour.
But thanks to government fundingin 2009, the park has now been transformed into a safe place for children to play.
Councillor Lesley Jones (Labour), ward councillor for Willesden, said: “The council’s design team have done a great job. It is good that children now have access to all the interesting play equipment.
