Save Bradbourne Lakes from neglect

Save Bradbourne Lakes from neglect

We want the SDC to reverse the years of neglect that blight our once beautiful space.

By committing funds to the restoration of pathways, desilting of the lakes and clearing away fallen trees and branches, our parkland could be restored to the tranquil oasis it once was.

Why is this important?

The park was once a beautiful spot but it is in danger of becoming a silty swamp. The more run-down it gets, the worse people treat it, despite the efforts of the community and supporters within the SDC.

Paths aren't repaired, which has rendered one part of the park inaccessible to lesser abled people and dead and dying trees, overhang the lakes.

Leaves are not cleared up, apart from by the local community, which causes flooding onto the paths in autumn and winter and stops locals using the amenities.

The park is a space that should be restored for all to enjoy, not left to decay.

Reasons for signing

  • I grew up in a semi backing on to these parks. My childhood was climbing the trees. Wading in the streams. Catching sticklebacks. Feeding the ducks and fearing the geese. I went back back couple of years ago and it was a depressing mess. It deserves to be a haven again.
  • This is a lovely park in a residential area where there are lots of young children and should be a lovely area to go for a walk or to play. It's such a shame that it's getting neglected.
  • I have taken all my children to these lakes and it seems such a shame that they are not being looked after.
