BYAP park, Chislehurst, BR7
So what have we done? Well in 2006 BYAP was given a green space in Chislehurst to make their own. The site is slowy being transformed into a new park. The young people have started to develop ideas and designs for their park which includes, a steel semi circular bench, bird and bat boxes, wildlife surveys, and working parties.
