Safety issues

Reported via mobile in the Park safety issue category anonymously at 09:57, Monday 15 March 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2609027.

So many safety issues with this park, none of the surrounding flooring is safe, there is a gap in the middle of the swing flooring, all the rubber areas surrounding the equipment is old and not sufficient, the bench is broken and extremely worn, the flying fix swing is old and cracked in several places, the handle is so old, rough and hard to hold onto it hurts your hand when using, also not safe as a child could fall off should it further crack. I cannot understand why other parks in the local area have so much of a larger budget than this one which has so many issues. It is a well used park and space that is much needed in this community. Even the benches that have been recently places aren’t painted properly and have marked posts that they are secured to, they look really old and tatty yet were only put in just a few weeks ago. Yet all other local parks have lovely new looking benches. Please address these issues it’s so disappointing and unfair! I am also more than happy to help do this park up, plant some trees to make it look nicer.

  • We have attended site and fixed some of the defects e.g. the zip wire seat cover has been replaced and the broken bench has been removed. We will return to work on the surfaces and repaint the benches.
