Falconwood Pocket Park – Exciting outdoor project for the whole community

falconwood

Do you recognise this place in Grays?

It is an oft-missed piece of woodland at the juncion of Bridge Road/Manorway and Argent Street and by early 2017 it will belong to the community of Grays through the work of Riverside Community Big Local.

Once the title has been transferred we will be undertaking some tree surgery work and rebuilding the wall with railings to secure the park at night.

A group of nearby residents are leading on the project and will be talking to the wider community about the possibilities of the pocket park once these works have been completed.
