People in the East End can have their say on improvement plans for public parks.

Tower Hamlets Council is spending £2m on trying to make ten parks better places to relax and have fun.

Improvements are set to include play equipment, a greater diversity of plants to encourage wildlife, and new and resurfaced paths. There will also be a focus on making visitors feel safer by improving entrances, lighting, and pruning some trees and shrubs to increase visibility.

Some of the funding has come for developers who have a legal obligation to give something back to the community.

Parks set to benefit from the funding include Allen Gardens, Stepney Green Gardens, Wapping Gardens, Tredegar Square, Centrell Road Open Space, Poplar Park, St John's Park, Millwall Park, Meath Gardens and Bethnal Green Gardens.

Money has also been put aside for the Victoria Park master plan.
