Proposal to reinvigorate Minchenden Oak Garden
We are currently developing a proposal to be submitted to Enfield Council to reinvigorate and refresh Minchenden Oak Garden – a hidden gem in Southgate (opposite the entrance to the Walker Ground in Waterfall Road).
The oak tree in this garden is estimated to be 800 years old and is thought to be a survivor of the ancient Forest of Middlesex. Southgate Green Association is proposing the restoration and enhancement of the Minchenden Oak Garden, which is managed by LBE on behalf of the local community.
Southgate Green Association proposes that the Garden is restored, re-landscaped, repaired, and made accessible to provide the community with a resource for recreation, contemplation and learning for all ages.
The proposals and ideas are outlined in our presentation. We understand that Enfield Council has set aside a sum of money for community projects such as this to benefit each Ward in Enfield and that a substantial sum of money has been allocated to the Southgate Green Ward.
You can see the plans for the proposals at the SGA AGM. If you like what you see, please confirm your support for this project and urge Enfield Council to allocate part of the funds for this worthwhile project by signing the petition. If you are unable to attend the AGM please write to us indicating your support for the project.
