Pathway works start at Paddington Recreation Ground from Friday 12 April

We’re getting some pathway works done at Paddington Recreation Ground starting this Friday 12th April.

Westminster City Council working alongside Everyone Active and FM Conways are about to begin a  phased programme of pathway works to :

  • improve accessibility
  • alleviate trip hazards
  • reduce localised rainwater ponding, and
  • undertake necessary repairs to the underground drains.
Paddington Rec pathway works
Works commence on Friday 12 April and will complete by July 2024.

In order to carry out these works, certain areas will need to be closed to the public and the gates leading into the grounds will be closed in phases corresponding to the relevant pathway work.
