Jubilee Pond's redevelopment was partly funded by money from the Met
Special guests from Epping Forest were treated to a tour of Jubilee Pond on Monday.
50 people joined the walk, hosted by community volunteer group Lakehouse Lake Project (LLP), to look at the new accessible trail, benches, cycle racks, picnic tables, and an upturned oak from Epping Forest which forms the centrepiece of a natural play area.
LLP has been involved with the City of London Corporation, who manage the space and Epping Forest, during recent landscaping works, which were partly funded by compensation money from the Met after police set up a muster station on Wanstead Flats during the Olympics.
Lakehouse Chair Dennis Stone said: “We’re pleased to have had the opportunity to be involved and influence the project from beginning to end, from design drawings to site meetings.”
The works were funded by the corporation, Heritage Lottery Fund and the Met.
LLP will continue to help with maintaining the grassland and planting around the pond.
