The improvement of South Park has been a key
objective of PRARA from the day the Association was formed.
In recent years the park has steadily deteriorated
due to vandalism and inadequate maintenance, partly because latterly
the Council has not had a Parks Department as such. Responsibility has
been spread across several departments with the result that there has
been no overall control or vision for the park.
South Park became the Borough’s
‘Cinderella’ park as the photographs on this page
forcefully illustrate. Since they were taken we are pleased to record
that some remedial work has been undertaken and in particular the
damaged terracotta has been removed.
