Roundwood green space

Roundwood Green Space is tucked away behind Roundwood Lane and next to Harpenden Rise allotments. It offers a play area, sloping grass picnic area with benches and two raised beds, wildlife hedgerows and mature trees along the park boundaries.

Following the Town Council’s acquisition of Roundwood green space in 2022, the play area required considerable renovation as the previous equipment was tired and outdated. Designers focused on exciting and diverse play equipment suitable for children of 6 months – 12 years old, accessibility with improved pathways and increased picnic and bench seating areas (including a bench outside the playground boundary for dog walkers).

We are consulting residents on a draft Management Plan which can be read by clicking on the link below. This plan provides management objectives to encourage the sustainable use of the play area and improve the local environment for both people and wildlife.

Harpenden Town Council is keen to receive comments from residents regarding the Management Plan. Please contact Tim Austin-Lomas:

Street Coordinators

Street Coordinators are volunteers who take on the responsibility of liaising with the Town Council and their neighbours: communicating important messages and assisting in looking out for vulnerable people. This is an invaluable scheme as Street Coordinators are often the first point of contact in identifying where assistance is needed.

Supporting Ukraine

The Ukrainian flags we raised back in March are still flying high in Harpenden and as Ukrainian families are starting to arrive, the Town Council is working in partnership with local organisations to make sure that the support available is both accessible and efficient.
