Our thanks to the council for installing a trial dog poo bag dispenser in the park.
It is located near the main picnic area – next to the information boards. No excuse now!
This is interesting footage of the park taken by a drone a couple of months ago:
The use of the Public Access Defibrillator in the park (funded by parkrunners) has been called upon when a customer in Lidl had a heart attack. The 999 caller was directed to the defib and it was taken for use to Lidl. CPR was administered and fortunately the defib wasn’t needed. The defib is now back in its house.
Although the defib was not used – this is a great result. Thankyou parkrun people…. you have made our little part of Doncaster sooooo much safer.
OK, another action packed day in the park – defib not required this time……. just a helicopter! The air ambulance attended in the park following a collision between two pedestrians and a vehicle on Thorne Road outside the park. Thorne Road was closed for a while.

A huge thankyou to all our supporters and followers.
Our thanks to Barry Bunting for a couple of intriguing photo’s of Doreen and himself in 1969 on the ‘Peninsular’ (bird feeding area) of the park. In the picture of Barry – it is amazing how well maintained the North Bank is.
But what is the structure at the top in the middle – about where the ice cream van stands nowadays?
Other things we note is the condition of the lake edging and a white swan! Oh! and they even snapped trees off in 1969!
If anyone has any old photo’s of the park we’d love to see them. Email them to us and we’ll post – especially if you have a park story to go with it.
