Grass mesh on sloping path from Cotswold Way towards Weston Park is very dangerous to walk on. It is very slippery, especially when it is wet or there is dew. It is very difficult to navigate this popular path.

Thanks for flagging this up. We're waiting for a contractor to replace the plastic mesh with a more suitable surface which may take several weeks before it can be done. We'll install signs ASAP warning people about the hazard and would advise the public to use alternative routes until we can get the surface replaced.
