Residents and local campaigners in Bexley borough are campaigning to save its open spaces.
The council has said it may need to get rid of almost 30 spaces in the borough as a cost-cutting measure. Campaigners say if this happens it could change the face of the borough forever.
The council said: “Slightly reducing the number of green areas for which we are responsible will allow us to maintain a reasonable level of grounds maintenance, to provide facilities within the parks and a diverse landscape with a range of habitats.
“Any sites that are agreed for disposal will be subject to the normal planning process, through which we will seek to minimise tree loss and ensure appropriate development.”
