We are making improvements to Silkstream Park in Burnt Oak and Montrose Playing Fields in Colindale and we would like your views on renaming these parks.

We have already asked local residents what facilities and improvements they would like to see in the two parks. When complete residents will be able to enjoy:
- two new play areas
- a new skatepark
- a multi-use games area
- outdoor gym equipment
- a new cafe and toilets
- a new biodiversity area with more planting
As part of these improvements we are also joining the two parks together with new improved crossing points and joined cycle paths.
We now want your views on renaming the parks. Should the names stay the same? Or should the parks have a whole new start and have a new name? The new name we are proposing is Silkstream Valley Park as the Silkstream river runs through both parks.
