I WONDER if the play equipment damage at Oakwood Park was intentional or happened when used by teenagers for whom it was not intended.
It sounds to me as if these youngsters haven't enough to do, so it's not good to build large areas of houses with nowhere to kick a ball about, no space for netball or to use skateboards, roller blades or mountain bikes.
And some communal place to play supervised pool, darts and computer games would help.
I think we do ourselves no favours putting up large estates with not enough open areas, no shops or pubs, and both developers and planning authorities should consider these aspects more carefully.
