Dog Kills Gosling

If you didn’t know already – you do now: Dogs MUST be kept on a lead around the lake areas.

One of the anglers has had to clear up the mess left behind when a dog attacked and killed a gosling. This is just not on. Not nice for children to witness; not nice for the geese parents to witness and definitely not nice for the gosling that was attacked and killed.
It’s not rocket science.

NOTE: Over the years we have been involved with the park we have had FIVE Black swans killed by dogs not on a lead. That is why we no longer have any black swans in the park.

Toilets Still Closed

We keep getting enquiries about the toilets and when will they open. This is not our decision, but the council’s.

We know there’s a problem with people spending more and more time outdoors and the need for toilets but we don’t have the answer. If you want to find out more, please contact the council on 01302 736000 or email custservpro@doncaster.gov.uk.
Thanks for your understanding.

Old Sandall Park Trail

This could be fun for you and your family. We’ve created a virtual trail around the park using old photos from a bygone era!

All you have to do is download the  FREE! TiCL App to your phone (both Apple and Android work fine). Then go to the park and open the App. You will see the “Old Sandall Park Trail” will be top of the list. Open it and you’ll see a list of old photos with a brief description – just click [DIRECT ME] and an arrow will direct you to the location of the photo – simples! You can even add your own comments and memories.

NOTE: Magnetic catches on your phone cover can/will affect the direction arrow – so it would be wise to take your phone out of its magnetic case to avoid problems.

All technical enquiries direct to TiCL please.

1st/36th St Peters Warmsworth Scouts, Cubs and Beavers  created the  fabulous TiCLsticks family.

It’s free and it’s a great way to have a look around the park. The families have all been given names of people linked to the scout/guide movement.

The TiCL app is already up and running.  You can have a look at the tree trail on-line by CLICKING HERE. You can download the free App and track the characters around the park by downloading the TiCL app from the App store or Google play.
