Improve Watery Lane Park

This petition is aimed at getting Watery Lane Park tidied up and improved to make it safe and appealing for children to play on. It’s a small Park next to Newrad fishing lodges, there’s not much to it at all, a few bits of play apparatus and a small all weather pitch.

This park seems to get forgotten about compared to other parks in the Darwen borough, the grass rarely gets cut, the bushes are over growing the paths and play areas and there isn’t a fence around the play area to keep dogs out like at every other park so it is full of dog mess. The paths are uneven and crumbling and there isn’t a single bin within the park, a lovely member of Keep Darwen Tidy has recently taken to hanging bin bags off the sides of the fences and benches to combat this.

The play area is old but still in ok shape but if this park carries on getting neglected like it has been then it will soon be unsafe to play on.
