    Council only care about inside the park & not the pathway round the edge out side! The path floods badly & the grass has only just been cut this week first time this year! & all the trees need looking at as had a branch fall on my car parked beside it as I live in The Old Collage House opposite & now see the branches have been left for someone to pick up to throw around!!
