Apologies for lack of wide shot. This sharp piece of metal was clearly once part of a fence, but it is still there and sticking out and quite a danger, particularly to children. It’s located close to the flower bed (on the Victoria Park side), where there is some paving, and then a drop down to the path that runs alongside the fencing that separates the Botanical Gardens and Victoria Park. Although ideally children should not climb here and walk up to the upper level of the gardens from this lower path...they do, and I just thought how awful it would be if they tripped and fell here.
