PMRA wants to create a Community Park and save the historic lime trees open space on Hornsey Park Road, a feature of our area for the past 125 years. The Lime Trees Community Park will be the space for the community to come together, be active and feel good about where we live. Linking old with the new, it will be part of a new ‘great outdoors’ and an escape in the midst of our crowded area, making a connection and ready to welcome the Heartlands community as it arrives.


We are an area of open space deprivation: our community needs open space to grow and thrive: the opportunity to achieve something of lasting value will never exist again:

Developers and planners must not be allowed to take and destroy this precious open space.

Please support us and help create a community open space that will change our area for the better and build a stronger, safer, healthier, friendlier community.

Before we get started, we need your ideas and support:

  • How do we make the park and garden attractive to all ages but particularly children?
  • What would make it a place you’d want to come to with family and friends?
  • How can we make build a local group of neighbours to look after it?

Council Leader Peray Ahmet and a few of her fellow councillors came to discuss the issues with our representatives.

    • Gardeners and critics unite!

      The loss of trees is becoming an issue locally. The wonderful false acacia at the junction of Mayes Road and Coburg Road was removed because it ‘had a fungus’ - just in time for the planning application to build on the petrol station site beside it.
