Dr Ray Moynihan, Suffolk Park
Thanks to The Echo for ongoing coverage of the debate about the proposed pump track at Suffolk Park (10 and 17 February).
As more scrutiny and information emerges about the size, scale, design, and potential impact on the community gardens and local amenity, the less appealing the plan appears. My family’s hope that the track and gardens can coexist remains, but anything the Council and community can do to ensure it is a genuine coexistence would be very welcome, and other appropriate locations for the track are worth considering.
Fun spaces for young people away from screens are vital, but so too is the calm quiet power of a growing garden in a tranquil suburban parkland.
