The consultants behind the regeneration of Gunnersbury Park in Brentford are set to face a public grilling later this month.
The team, busy drawing up a shortlist of proposals to restore the site to its former glory, are due to appear at the next stakeholders meeting on January 24.
Regeneration manager Richard Gill said he hoped they would be able to attend the event, taking place in the museum at 11am, to dispel any lingering concerns about secrecy surrounding the park's future.
The first detailed plans about how to revitalise the long-neglected Brentford park should be ready by the end of February, when they are due go out to public consultation.
"The shortlisted option will include firm costs and benefits because, while don't want to present the public with a fait accompli, nor do we want to start with a blank canvas," said Mr Gill.
Only when a preferred option has been chosen will the regeneration board prepare its bid for a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
Mr Gill said that there had already been a lot of interest in the park from sports clubs and from fishing groups keen to use the Potomac Lake.
