Online booking system in place to cope with demand during hot weather
Ravenscourt Park paddling pool
The Ravenscourt Park paddling pool has re-opened after long-running repair works to its filtration system.
Due to expected high demand during the hot weather only 30 children per session are being allowed in the pool for safety reasons and to maintain water quality. All bathers must be under eight years old.
The council have created a sign-up page on Eventbrite. FREE 90-minute sessions are bookable for entry times at 10am, 11.45am, 1.30pm and 3.15pm.
Ravenscourt Park is a 13-hectare open space in Hammersmith that also features play areas, sports facilities and a nearby garden centre.
You can also find some shade thanks to the park’s 600 plus trees. To learn about some old, rare and new trees, follow the Tree Trail map created by the Friends of Ravenscourt Park and independent local estate agent Horton and Garton.
The Bishops Park splash pad in Fulham remains closed due to issues with the mechanical water jet system.

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.
Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.
We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.
However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.
We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.
One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.
