Hundreds of local people have expressed their concerns and priorities for Wanstead Park in a public survey conducted by the Friends of Wanstead Parklands.

Respondents listed preserving the lakes, improving the natural environment and improving public access as the three most pressing issues, with litter and dog behaviour also highlighted as problem areas. Peacefulness, being close to nature and walks around the lakes were among the reasons people appreciate Wanstead Park.

“With over 400 replies to the survey, it’s clear our members and the public love the park and value the benefits it brings. On their behalf, our committee will now present these findings to the City of London Corporation and other stakeholders to encourage action to address their priorities,” said a spokesperson.
