The need to upgrade the lighting in Paddington Recreation Ground has been one of the issues most frequently brought to our attention by local residents and we are currently working on details to enable us do this work. We are in the process of looking at installing additional lighting columns to further improve security and visibility at night. Certain paths in the grounds have been identified and we are looking to improve these area with this scheme which we will fund from our Ward Budget . These improvement have seen usage continue to increase with over 1.1 million visitors every year. We continue to strive to balance the use of the grounds whether this is for casual or for sporting use and with its growing popularity it is more important than ever that we keep this balance fair and appropriate between the different and diverse uses. We have recently introduced a Community Notice Board to inform visitors about events, welcome the frequent presence of our Safer Neighbourhood Team and our Dog Warden. Our Responsible Dog Owners and their animals are a huge and much loved part of Rec life.
