A reminder you have until 22nd JULY 2019 to provide your feedback, positive or negative.
You can read more about these plans online or via a display in the Museum -
[horniman.ac.uk]

This is informal consultation and there will be formal planning consultation but its worth making your views known.

The visitor numbers are more than they anticipated so there will be changes and in the main they look ok from my point of view but we all use the museum and gardens. differently.

Good point from Angelina about children being managed visiting at certain times or maybe certain areas could be kept child free. The gardens are big enough and people could then chose where / when to visit.

Its the final opportunity to make post any thoughts you have about the changes to the Horniman Museum and Gardens, pls take the time to let them know what you think about the "proposed" changes.

I think it is proposed that there is direct access from the old boating lake area onto the nature trail. The nature trail itself is an area of biodiversity, a place of tranquillity for varied species of wildlife. My concern is that if it is used by parents, their kiddies and their dogs as just another cut through to London Road that peace and tranquillity will be lost. I really think the nature trail should be protected and access onto it restricted within certain hours, which I believe is the case at present.

As to Dulwich's common.. it's mostly a golf course. You won't have a problem with crowds there
but what a grossly wasteful use of inner London land. Nothing against golf, but go play it in

And then we wonder why the parks are crowded.

It’s not actually “mostly a golf course”. If you look it up on a map you’ll see that sports
grounds and playing fields take up an almost equal amount of space.
