The two sides of Ynysangharad Park

August 19, 2019 10:00 AM

The phrase 'jewel in the crown' is a bit overused, but there is no doubt Ynysangharad War Memorial Park is a beautiful place to relax, play or exercise and it holds fine memories for many people.

There have been a variety of well attended events in the Park recently such as the Big Bite, which attracts many into the town and, unlike other events, means the whole park is kept open to the public. The park run every Saturday attracts hundreds, and it was great to see the bandstand being used by young performers, it should happen more often.

On the down side many people are saying they are afraid to go into the park because of anti-social behaviour there. At a meeting in the community centre on 7 August residents repeated reports that are rife on social media of discarded needles found there, of certain undesirables wandering around drunk or on drugs.

These concerns are not only in relation to the park but the town centre as a whole. Residents complain about lack of police presence and action and are asking why the Council don't provide security there.

Following discussions with the police and others I will be holding another public meeting on 21 August, 6 pm in Trallwn community centre to feed back to residents. I hope to have representatives from the Police and other relevant agencies there.

In the meantime if anyone has any concerns or definite evidence or information that will help the case for more policing and Council presence then please get in touch.
