The Friends of Gunnersbury have asked the public to respond to a consultation on sport and a sports hub building in the Park.

Hounslow and Ealing Councils are currently engaged in a refurbishment of the Park and Museum, having been awarded a £4.7 m Heritage Lottery grant.

The works will make a number of significant improvements to Gunnersbury Park Museum, including:

• Repairing the external and internal fabric of the Large Mansion; making more areas of the building open to the public and re-establishing views into and out of the building
• Creating display rooms on the ground and first floor to properly showcase museum collections
• Refurbishing the drawing room, long gallery and dining room; along with the historic kitchen and servants rooms
• Improving the visitor reception area, signage and gift shop
• Building new learning spaces
• Installing a lift to the upper floors to improve public access

Refurbishment work will begin in the autumn 2015 and is due for completion by spring 2017. Once all of the improvements to Gunnersbury Park and Museum are completed, visitor numbers are expected to rise from 600,000 to over a million per year.”
