City Bank is a large hidden area of grassland in the Watermoor area
of town - about two acres of land.
should be a picturesque place to be with the river running one side
of it and on the other side a raised path.
it is unkempt and nothing more than an eyesore.
used to be a nice place to wander and relax has changed. Families
can no longer have a nice picnic, allowing their children to play
on the swings and slides because they were removed a couple of years

the 'bank' is covered in graffiti, scruffy trees and straggly bushes.
worst of all there is dog mess nearly everywhere you walk.
call it safe either. Many people have been assaulted whilst using
the park as a result of there being no floodlit lighting for the
evenings and no CCTV.
annoyance is the state of one of the access footpaths which used
to be a railway line. Walking down there you can see how disgusting
it is with dog mess covering the whole footpath and is very difficult
can't dog owners be responsible enough to pick it up, considering
there is a dog bin at the end of the path?
trees down there are awful and need to be trimmed back to make way
to see the lovely view.
importantly lighting to make it safe.
I would also suggest a nice tarred pathway because at the moment
it is just a walkeay that was been worn down by feet and covered
with a few stones.
problem really needs to be addressed, I hate going down the path
but find it really hard to avoid as I personally use it as a shortcut.
the first job would be to add another dog bin as at present there
is only one.
also suggest cleaning the mess up and sorting the trees and bushes
out. But, most importantly lighting to make it safe.
