A Sad post on the Friends of Wollaton Park Facebook

In fact not very friendly…



Thats really not acceptable. Its a truly dreadful sentiment and against the reason the council bought the park in 1924, for the people of nottingham.
The park is not an anti social place and does not need guards or policing, in 64 years of visiting (starting with grandparents) from my family home on a road alongside the park I have not seen or heard of any truly anti social behaviour.
(The worst was when parking charges were introduced).
If you are aware of all the events, outdoor films, weekend events and the music festie you know there has been very little really anti social behaviour…just a few folks driving stupidly round the car park is prob the worst…its good for the park to be open late in summer evenings particularly for families with working parents.
The biggest complaints of local residents have been (and still are); that some properties have gardens that folk chuck rubbish into and occassionally can use the park to access without permission but that would not be solved by ‘guards’ and the next gripe is traffic, noise and influx of people not normally in the area at big events. Thats the offsett for having a super space close to home.
Lets hope there is a vaccine soon so ordinary life can return.
