Our top 2 answers to the question we asked about what park they take their
children too came up as a Royston park being the most popular. This question show
that people use different which helped us prove points about different parks.
Most of the parents take their children or child to the park weekly this may show
that the park is not that good or the child gets bored easily at this park. As well as
them maybe being in school is a problem.
90% of the parents say dogs are in the park they go to. This tells us that we
need to think about getting a separate section for the dogs so that the children
and the dogs don’t mingle. Some people may not have a problem with dogs
running around but we have to think about other peoples matters as well as
just 1. If the dogs have a separate part the children and the parents can feel
more safe and not have to worry about dogs running loose.
Most of the parents say that the children do not get scared and quite like the
dogs running around but still 22% of children do get scared and that is quite a lot
of people that have a problem with it. This again says we need to think about
other peoples point of view and do a separate part in the park.
50% of the parents say that they see teenagers drinking/ smoking in the park
when they go and this is really bad because the children are watching them
which is a bad influence and causing them to copy the teenagers. This is a big
distraction for them and puts parents of visiting the park, its giving it a bad name
and if they are being loud and disruptive then it’s a bad environment for anyone
to be in.
40% of parents say that when they visit the park there are smashed glass
bottles just on the floor in sight of everyone. This is a bigger risk for the
children running around as they could pick all this glass up and cause danger
to themselves as they could cut themselves and its dirty as its been on the
This is the best answer we had because it shows that nearly all the dog owners
do use the bins to put waste in leaving it clear and a more of a nice sight for
others in the park. At least we know that the things provided in the park are
being used and not going to waste.
Only 88% of parents say the park they go to have good up to standard
equipment, this should really be 100% as all parks need good equipment and
enough to make the children be able to have fun for a while and not get bored
88% of the people who answered that question want their to be a separate
section for the dogs, this is good because it shows that they are thinking
about safety and others going to the park. Tells us that we have to make it
happen so their children feel safe.
60% of parents say they will feel more safe if there was CCTV cameras in
the park to see everything what happens. This would make more people
come to the park if they know its safe for them to go and if anything
happens its easy to investigate.
