here are several notices around the park stating that DOGS ARE NOT ALLOWED. However, this is being ignored and the amount of dog owners now using the park is continually increasing. Whilst owners may say that they pick up their mess there is ALWAYS a residue. We are asking dog owners not to use the parks to walk their dogs, being that there are plenty of places around the area to accommodate dogs.
New swing seats and chains have been installed on the swings. Other maintenance work ongoing.
