A Wilmslow parent feels the Council has abandoned their local park leaving it to become run down with worn down paths and trip hazards on entry to the play equipment.
The popular South Oak Lane Park, which is used by local families and pupils from the nearby primary school, also has play equipment which was installed three months ago but remains fenced off so the children are unable to play on it.
Mark Campbell told me "I take my 6 year old daughter to South Oak Lane Park most days and she always asks the same question 'Why is the new play equipment fenced off?'
"Also she had a fall into the sharp stones to the entrance just over a year ago, it's beyond me why a children's play area would contain trip hazards and jagged stones, there are also sharp metal railings that trees overhang and I have seen children play near them."
He added "Also the park used to have two goalposts now it has one as two years ago the council took one away for some unknown reason."
A spokesperson for Cheshire East Council said: "The council secured £36,000 of funding from housing developments in the local area to improve the play area at South Oak Lane Park, also known as the Fulshaw Recreation Ground, in Wilmslow.
"The new play equipment being installed will provide play opportunities for the younger age range aimed at encouraging early years' active play.
"Work began with the installation of the equipment but, due to unforeseen circumstances, it is currently fenced off and awaiting the laying of the safety surfacing. This work will be done as soon as the weather conditions are more favourable – and our intention is to get this play area open again as soon as possible."
