Parks & Open Space

Enfield Council has provided reassurance in the light of concerns about the amount of parkland that will be occupied by the Broomfield Park wetlands scheme. The finished scheme will occupy only a small proportion of the site that is currently fenced off.

Inspired by the wonderful wetlands in Firs Farm, this is our second Firs Farm photography competition. If you've never entered a photographic competition before this is an ideal opportunity to start. The competition will take place as part of the Firs Farm Wetlands 'Get out & Get active' project on 12th May 2019. So come on, get out and capture your Wetlands inspiration!
