Make Finsbury Park Safer After Dark

This petition had 6,202 supporters

Finsbury park is sat between multiple stations/ bus stops and residential areas. It is often used as the direct route home for many, as alternative routes can up to double the walking time home. 

The problem after dark (which is as early as 4pm in the winter) is there is no lighting or safety features, despite the park being open 24/7. According to roughly 100 crimes were reported in the park a month in 2017. And recently a young lady lost her life walking through the park on the way home on Christmas Eve at around 8.30pm.

As a local resident I feel too unsafe to walk through the park after dark and I worry about my local friends who admit they do walk through there regularly at night.

If measures could be taken on the main routes through the park, such as lighting, CCTV and more wardens or help points it would make the park a safer place for all and hopefully prevent tragedy striking again.
