That's very bad. If anyone does decide to clean it up, I'd be glad if they also came up and did some work to Allens Gardens in Stamford Hill. The play area there is similarly graffiti covered and in need of a bit of care.

I was very concerned to read this post. I have been assured that the park rangers have thoroughly swept the site and removed the tufts of grass between the surfaces. The moss was removed by jet washing on 16th January. As soon as the weather dries out the Council will start on work to paint the toilet block to remove the offensive graffiti, and the rangers have made a start on the removal of graffiti on the play equipment.

I would also like to take this opportunity to say that we do take complaints we receive very seriously and aim to resolve them as quickly as possible.

Because this area is surrounded by large plane trees it has quite a nutritions surface and therefore does need a bit more care than other windswept playgrounds. Incidentally Millfields has a unique collection of Elm Trees,thought outnumbered by the Planes. Well done Dave and Jules. But I do worry that it needs Jules to read your blog ,Dave to get things done...does nobody further down the council food chain flag these things up? I am still waiting for an answer to requests for a dropped kerb on the narrow bit of pavement between Millfields Road and Millfields school, a significant barrier to prams and bikes.
