Langthorne Park was opened on Saturday 17 June 2000.
The site acquired by Waltham Forest Council in 1996 for the Langthorne Park development.
The park features a number of specially commissioned art features enhancing both the physical environment of the park as well as providing visual representations of the site's long history.
What is proposed?
For much of the year Langthorne Park Pavilion remains underutilised.
A small office located at the entrance of the pavilion is used daily by the Park Keeper and there are some activities held throughout the year by the Friends of Langthorne Park, which require use of the pavilion including a Christmas dinner for elderly residents, and the very popular annual ‘roller disco.’ Any potential proprietor would be expected to work alongside this existing use.
We are inviting expressions of interest from the local community to help us to make better use of Langthorne Park Pavilion and amphitheatre.
We are looking for an organisation that has the enthusiasm, ideas and commitment to bring the pavilion back into full use, regaining its rightful position as a central hub in the community.
What happens when?
- Friday 26 July 2019: deadline for submissions of expressions of interest
- August 2019: Shortlisting - strongest candidates invited to meet with the council
- October 2019: submission of business plan with costings, and projected budget
- November/December 2019: community partner selected
