I was reading with interest people's accounts of the changes that have been made to the park since it was under-used and a bit bleak and also the Council's own website which talks of plans to use some of the revenue generated from the concerts to demolish a derelict pavilion on the baseball field and open up a currently closed section of the new river - and it got me wondering about the remaining derelict buildings near the station - what used to be the Jamboree playhuts and surrounding playground. I think these closed in around 2010. Are they destined to remain unused and in a state of decay forever?
I also think better use could be made of the baseball field area. It doesn't seem to be in regular use for games. At the very least it could be opened up as a route through to Sainsburys etc by putting a gate in that corner of the field. Regular passers through might help that section feel less abandoned.
