Tearoom for hungry walkers and cyclists etc
Mount Vernon park need s a hard standing path that travels around the whole park. this would ensure that people can use the park in all seasons for walking, jogging etc. It will also allow children to cycle around the park rather than through the grass which is often too long to use.
I love walking though such a large and interesting park so close to the city centre.
The thing I would like to see is improved pathway along the river as it so peaceful to just stroll along the river.
A restricted / fenced off area where dogs can be let-off their leads and allowed to exercise with their owners would be much appreciated by those who use the park and are fearful of dogs.
This is particularly so as, increasingly, the number of dogs (disciplined and non disciplined) are being let-off their leads in communal park areas, run free and, in a significant number of cases, cause distress to non-dog lovers and mothers with small children.
The by-laws pertaining to park behaviours stipulate that dogs should be on leads; this needs to be monitored and addressed before the park becomes a no-go area for non dog lovers.
It would be great if there were some wooden animal characters placed along the new woodland walk in the park. It would help the kids to learn about what shapes the animals are, in 3D.
It would be really good if there was a stile over the wall so that parents with young children are able to get quicker and easier access to the play area.
