Join us to launch new projects in Southgate

Enfield Council will be delivering improvements across Southgate throughout 2024 to make the everyday experience of the Town Centre more welcoming and vibrant for people who live, work and visit there. These interventions aim to improve key routes for people walking to, from and around Southgate, and enhance the public realm with greenery and public art to transform the Town Centre.

The first interventions to be completed in February are:

  • two new ‘parklets’ that will introduce greenery and public seating in Ashfield Parade, to welcome more diverse people into this area, introducing shade, shelter as well as places to stop and rest.
  • a vibrant, colourful public artwork displayed temporarily in the windows of Southgate Library that celebrates Southgate’s horticultural heritage, created by local artist Dan Maier for the Festival of Industry programme

The Journeys and Places Team invites the local community to celebrate the launch of these two projects at a community event that will take place on Saturday 9 March 2024 across three locations: Southgate Library, Ashfield Parade and Southgate Club.

The event will be an opportunity to celebrate the newly completed projects and present the other interventions that the Council will be delivering in Southgate throughout 2024 as well as hear from local people what they would like to see in the future for Southgate to inform a longer-term vision for the Town Centre.

Should you wish to join us along the way, the order of events are as follows:

10am to 11.30am at Southgate Library - High St, N14 6BP
