August 16th – Another place I love is Kings Hill Park in Darlaston, one of Walsall’s little known, minor parks.
Sadly in the last couple of years it’s not had the maintenance it formerly had, with resources going to the borough’s ‘Green Flag’ parks instead: We no longer get the planters maintained as beautifully, and the attention to upkeep is more cursory.
However it’s still beautiful and has some gorgeous flowers – just not so many as it did, sadly.
To be here, seeking space from work on a wet, blustery summer day, in peace and quiet with industry just metres away, is bliss. You can stand here, take five and just inhale the green.
A beautiful park, a credit to the town and those who care for it, but it needs more resources sparing for it.
