In autumn 2009 a new children's building and new toilet facilities will be provided in the park to complete the transformation started in May 2008.

The work at Myatts Fields is being carried out through an innovative partnership between Lambeth Borough Council and local residents which has enabled the park committee to access over £3million funding from Lambeth Borough Council and the National Lottery.

On a recent visit to the park Vassall Councillor Kingsley Abrams commented "the transformation of Myatts Fields park has been amazing and should bring benefits to local residents and local children especially for years to come."

He added "I passed by several times in the summer and saw that the children's play area was absolutely packed with young people enjoying themselves. Well done to the Myatts Fields Park Project Group for overseeing this transformation. I like to think this is Lambeth Council at its best - supporting local residents to transform their areas."
