A £1m PROJECT to link parks and green spaces in Southall via the Grand Union Canal will be launched on Monday (25).

Canal & River Trust, Ealing Council and its Let’s Go Southall programme plus Catalyst housing association are staging an information event from 1-3pm at Havelock Green Space, Havelock Road/Isambard Road.

The Southall Wellbeing Way project was awarded £700,000 by the Mayor of London in March.

The aim is for improvements to help people lead more active lives and boost their wellbeing, while enhancing the biodiversity and climate resilience of the area.

Southall Wellbeing Way will connect Spikes Bridge Park on the Grand Union Canal Paddington Arm to Glade Lane Canalside Park and the Hanwell Lock Flight.

The route will also link Southall Recreation Ground, Bixley Field, Havelock Canalside space and Norwood Green Top Lock.
