Oakwood Park Cafe- MEQ

Original Email:

Dear Department,

I have a query from a resident that is asking why there are currently no cafes in both the Arnos and Oakwood Park areas.

The council before used to have council run cafes in public parks, but this is only in a few ones left in our borough.

I would like to ask if the council has cafes in these parks, and if not, do they plan on making it available for private tenure at least?


There was a café in Oakwood Park however this was reviewed by the Parks Assets Team who’s decision was then to market the property which resulted in 10 year letting and commencing 1st April 2018 as an indoor play facility for children with ancillary refreshments.
