Festival Park play area survey

LIBERAL Democrats in Gateshead have carried out a survey of residents about play areas on Festival Park and Rosewood Park in the Team Valley.

The survey was carried out after residents raised concerns about inadequate play facilities for children.

“The two estates here were built after the National Garden Festival finished in 1990,” said Peter Andras, who co-ordinated the survey.

“There are many young families living there and parents had told us that more facilities were needed. The small play areas already there were appropriate for toddlers but there was nothing much for older children.

“So we carried out the survey over the past two weekends to get a better picture of what people’s concerns were.

“We are now checking through all the replies and will be taking up the issues raised with the Council.”
