As another year draws to a close, so does another chapter on the development of the park. Lots of positive changes have been taking place and the park strives forward on its journey to becoming the Best Park in Doncaster.
The Friends of Sandall Park have been beavering away in the background, working with the council and a private investor to bring a new cafe building into the mix. This will include public toilets which will be available all year round, one of our key conditions of the agreement. There are of course other considerations all of which will benefit the park and its visitors enormously. Lots to look forward to then in the coming months and as the saying goes “Things can only get better”.
Things have already been ‘getting better’ thanks to all of the park visitors and users. The new angling club have taken the lake and its surroundings to a new level and turned it around. You, the park visitors have done your part in challenging litter droppers and dog foulers, done your own informal litter picks, challenged what little anti social behaviour there is, and generally taken a pride in your park. The difference is evident in the way the park looks and feels. Someone recently told me “It has a really calm and relaxing atmosphere”.
May I, on behalf of FoSP, thank you for your help in making Sandall Park the lovely park that it is, and wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a Healthy and Happy 2016. We look forward to seeing you in the park and at our events in the coming year.
