Hi, I think that the improvements made earlier in the year to the childrens play area are great. However one thing which bothers me & I wonder if it has been overlooked or whether they have not been changed for a reason are the 2 gates into the childrens play area.
The one by the cafe area is forever being left open & does not really close properly. And the newer gate, although it automatically closes, is easily opened even by very young children. Is there any way these gates can be child proofed? I.e some sort of latch on them that can be opened by adults but not by younger children.
I spend a lot of time at the park and children are forever making bids for freedom (!) through the gates & I think it would give parents a bit more peace of mind & be safer if the gates were more secure. I do appreciate aswell that its parents responsibility to look after their children, but if you are looking after several & they run in different directions it is difficult sometimes to keep them away from the lure of the open gates (particularly the one that leads to the ice cream!).
Just wondered what other peoples thoughts were & if anything can be done?
