Belmont Recreation Ground
Downhills Park Road and Boundary Road, N15
- Picnic area
Green Flag Award
Belmont was first Awarded The Green Flag Award in 2010. It has been retained ever since.
The 2009 improvements have been very popular with local families using the park, as the playground now offers a better play experience. Playground markings including a scooter track (games painted onto the tarmac).
A new footpath surrounding the playground was built to allow people taking a circular walk of the park to circumnavigate the playground as the old footpath went straight through the play area. This caused numerous problems with people walking dogs in the playground and parents felt that the play area was not a safe space to bring their children.
After the entrance at Boundary Road was re-done it has completely removed the previous anti-social behaviour problems that were taking place there. There is now no space for fly tipping or drug dealing and the park entrance is welcoming and spacious. This has been a particularly important feature for local people living close to the park on Boundary Road as their lives were blighted for many years because of the previous problems.
In August 2019 a new Gate was placed in the Picnic Area, tree guards were also removed and new benches were added.
