The downs: our kind of park

Most of the cities parks have had their through roads closed; bollards put in to stop us parking on the grass. One bit of greenery stands out: the Downs.

As well as the zoo-specific car park area which comes out in high summer, this is one place where you can still park your motor on the grass, whip out the BBQ and start burning things. It also has the no cycling signs up to reduce the danger to you and your vehicle from wheeled lycra louts.
Despite the signs, some small children do occasionally cycle through here, so it's good to see the police keeping an eye on things


This ensures that no laws have been broken in the area.

I thought that the council had banned the use of BBQ's on the downs, as well as employing a private company to stop the parking of vehicles on the grass?????
