I was contacted by a number of residents from Oakland Park on Friday about the damage caused  to the local play park. Sadly this isn’t the first time this park has been targeted.

When I visited the area I could see that the rubber safety matting was ripped up. The park warden had no choice  but to keep it locked to avoid further damage.

I have spoken to council officers who have assured me they will have it fixed as soon as possible. And I would appeal to parents to be mindful of where their children are at and ask  them to respect the park facilities as we had to fight long and hard to get them.
