    Default Parks - Who Are They For?

    There are now some good facilities in our parks for young people. But what about the older folk? Would you like to see more being done to cater for their interests? [See the attached poster]

    Parks are pretty empty places in this country. On the continent and in Scandinavia they are used a lot more especially for outdoor musical recitals/concerts. When I was a kid (1960s) all kinds of sports and equipment was made available for us and we would spend all ove the summer holidays there.

    I agree UW, we had no more than a field by us. We used tospend all our time there playing football and stuff. It was great.

    The Friends Of Princes Park want to encourage all users of this historic park to feel involved in maintaining and improving it, and invite anyone interested to come along to all our meetings.

    Their Annual General Meeting is this evening at 6 pm at Bellerive School. Everyone is welcome.

    A Flickr Slideshow of the Lake area, hopefully to be refurbished in the not-too-distant future can be seen here :

    Good luck to you. Parks should be available to all age groups, and kept safe for all to enjoy.

    It's a park I've not been in. I don't know why, just never have.

    I've been to Sefton park countless times but not Princes for some reason. I've only passed by there.

    I have a vague memory that my nan may have taken me in there once when I was very little. We used to visit relations who lived off High Park st. But I don't know what's in the park not having explored it.

    The Ranger Interpretation Service have an ongoing schedule of events in the parks throughout the city, although I'm not sure how many of these have been in Princes Park. I have been on a couple of the ranger led walks with my husband in Sefton Park recently; we both found them really enjoyable and informative. One of the things we noticed was that the majority of people who went on these walks were of the older generation and they all seemed to appreciate the wealth of knowledge the rangers have about the history of our parks. Maybe the Ranger Service should be approached about scheduling more events in Princes Park next year.

    We've recently got a whole lot of play equipment too, courtesy of the previous government. Here are some of the exercise machines we have for adults:
