The Clissold Park User Group (CPUG) is a local community group for the people of Stoke Newington in Hackney who appreciate and love their local park.

The group has been campaigning locally for over 20 years and seeks to represent the interests of everyone who uses this very popular park: the walkers, joggers, cyclists, nature lovers, families and free spirits who value the opportunity to enjoy time outdoors in this beautiful and historic space.

Fundraising and park improvements

Using information from the Annual survey, CPUG and the park management have identified four areas that park users would like investment in:

  1. The replacement of the drinking fountain outside the Lodge at the Green Lanes gate
  2. Installation of some new baby swings in the playground
  3. Installation of fixed fitness equipment (probably down by the multi-use games area)
  4. Creating a new beginners wheels area for younger children near the skatepark

The Council does not have sufficient funds for these. We will keep you posted about our fundraising plans but please do let us know if you are interested in helping.
