October 19th – Originally featuring tennis courts, gardens and bowling greens, the original, once beautiful Oak Park has been pretty much abandoned and allowed to decay in recent years.
This is a crime, and a civic insult to the miners and citizens of Walsall Wood to whom this place was a gift.
Only the bowling club, with a well kept, securely fenced green still get the benefit of this sad, lost place.
I cannot countenance a world where there simply isn’t the money allowed to look after our civic amenities like this.
