Save Rosehill Park in Hitchin
WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT!
North Herts District Council is CLOSING 14 children’s playgrounds across Hitchin, Letchworth, Baldock, Royston and Stevenage, including our much loved and used Rosehill Park - the horsey park, named due to its well loved rocking horse.
North Herts District Council have identified Rosehill Park as a park of 'low strategic play value' and 'low usage'. We dispute this and know that the park is well used by local children and families. We feel access to and availability of play equipment and parks is critical for children's development and long term health.
The park has been a central part of the Rosehill community since the early 1960s. The park is perfectly located for families in this heavily family populated area. Feedback from wider community members such as childminders and grandparents give weight to this. The residents feel strongly that this children's play area must remain as it is, available and accessible to all.
Please sign our petition to make NHDC aware of the strength of public support against the closure of Rosehill Park.
