Our park is increasing popularity so most days you walk through you will find all different sorts of people involved in all sorts of activities. I find it a very refreshing visit and escape from my fast paced, concrete, urban working life.
Giggles in the play area once more
An obvious future concern is that if BCC have to pay maintenance costs in our park to replace damaged items they will be less inclined to support any new facilities or projects which will leave our aspirations somewhat depleted.
We have ordered and paid for two very smart looking metal two picnic benches which will be installed on site later this year or early next year – we have to wait to have them made and installed. They probably sit near the canal feeder overlooking the informal football. One will have wheel access, the other seat four persons. The skateboarders asked for a couple of benches and bins, and we have been one bench short in the lower civic area for a long time – provisions to provide these have been made too.
A sunny success – our first Birmingham Play Care Day
We held our first successful Birmingham Play Care Day www.bpcn.org.uk on 9 August. This included a variety of different types of play such as paper lanterns, rocket making, hammock swinging, flying kites, imaginative exploring and music. Around 60 children or various ages came along with their parents may with picnics. The Birmingham Play Care Day staff were wonderful in encouraging expression of play and enhanced everyone’s play experience, including us older kids too. Thank you to those who helped and took part. What was wonderful too was within a few minutes at the end the debris which was sprawled over park was scooped up and packed away. You just wouldn’t have known they were there.
