Firs Farm Playing Fields is an expansive open space bordering Edmonton and Winchmore Hill in North London. The Mayor of London's Big Green Fund will help to restore 500m of river to the park can create a sustainable wetland habitat.


 The Big Green Fund will see 500m of the culverted Moore Brook restored to the park (a ‘lost tributary of the Pymmes Brook, piped underground over 50 years ago) and the development of a new wetland habitat capable of storing 30,000 cubic meters of flood water, reducing flood risk to local roads and properties. This will create an interesting and varied landscape, improving the ecology and biodiversity of the park

Cllr Chris Bond, Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment and Community Safety said: “This is the most fantastic news for Firs Farm Park and we couldn’t have done it without the tireless work and support of the friends of Firs Farm Park. This money will see vital work taking place to build a flood relief scheme and cycle path to improve Firs Farm Park for visitors and make even more accessible so even more people can enjoy it. We have the support of our partners the Environment Agency, Thames Water, Sustrans and Thames21.”
