Everyone is welcome to get involved and to help create an inclusive, safe and exciting space where we can all enjoy ourselves.
The aim is to create an open area that can cater for the needs of many people by providing, as well as a quiet and reflective place, a happy and welcoming environment to share with the group, to enjoy events and sport and where people can develop respect for the environment.
By keeping the park in good order, we hope that less littering and graffiti will occur and park users will be encouraged to care for their space.

Cost of Police for one burglary is around £4000, the costs of drawing on many community services is expensive.
Costs on the community purse can be reduced by adopting some simple ideas at a local level, with increased health and wellbeing benefits.
