Parkinson’s Park, Regeneration – Your Views

Otley & Yorkshire Dales Dry Stone Wallers

Friends of Parkinson’s Park are now working with Bellway to help  improve conditions in the Park: work will start in November.  So, we’d like to know what you love about the Park, and what improvement you’d like to see.  Do you have a favourite bramble patch you want to keep?  Was the pear tree planted for Aunt Betty? What is your pet hate about the area, as it stands, that you’d like to see improved.  We’d like to know fairly quickly,  so please leave a comment below,  give one of the FOPP committee a call, or just vote in the poll on the top right of your screen.

    Would love to see the seats restored – after you’ve walked up the hill to the park to exercise the dog, at my age, it is nice to sit and rest and enjoy the view for a while.

  2. Ian Hobson says:

    To improve it, I suggest:Signposts, and ‘no dog-fowling’ notices, for the footpaths, to encourage them to be used.

    The planting of some native English trees to, perhaps, make it all woodland.

  3. David Robinson says:

    I seem to remember something being said about a search light battery being somewhere in the Park during the war but I’m not sure who would have any info, on this. .

    Excellent website, congratulations Jennie and the commiteel.
    I have lifetime memories and pleasure of Parkinsons Park…….more later.

  5. Carol Robertson says:

    Thank you for doing this! Parkinson’s is looking great already and I think with the addition of some bins people will be more inclined to keep things tidy and remove their mess. Excellent initiative, well done to the movers and shakers for your commitment to the project.
