Slushy snow from the Beast from the East 2 at Eastside City Park. Deserted no one around!

The lawns have been raked over in preparation of laying new ones, not sure why but the old ones were looking a little tired.

Wow. I didn't realise this work was so extensive - I just thought they were re-laying the grass nr to Masshouse which had worn out. I don't recall the lawns here being a problem?

I hope they don't delay laying the new grass - I'm concerned it won't take in the drier weather and they'll have to be re-laid all over again! lol.

I'm guessing BCU in building 3 buildings has contributed to the maintenance for a number of years??

I'm just relieved it is actually being well looked after.

IIRC there was some form of maintenance plan put in place as part of the proposals to ensure it was well maintained. As you say, BCU may contribute financially to this.

Private estates like Brindleyplace are well maintained through service charges and so Paradise and Arena should be well looked after also.

I'd like to see public money diverted to the BID districts and for them to take ownership of the maintenance of their streets. Would improve on the piecemeal maintenance we see from BCC...

It's going to be great when we get Curzon Promenade connecting the Park to Moor St Queensway. The walk is too convoluted atm from the city centre

Grass must be growing now at Eastside City Park.



2 weeks ago when the soil was bone dry.

Just walked past that part of the park BrumX and it looks exactly the same. Can't quite get my head around what's going on here. Doesn't even look seeded, just looks like weeds are springing up and adding a splash of colour... :/

Rain has helped the grass at Eastside City Park, however it is still patchy.

This park had so much potential but it’s been ruined by the skateboarders and the lack of ambition to keep it clean ...Maybe HS2 will change things but such a shame that this park looks so tired already

Walked past today and they've put grass seed down. Looks like they were erecting barriers too to keep people off. Doesn't stop the Seagulls of course, they were having a royal banquet...

Frustrating that here we are in the summer and half the park is off limits... No sunbathing or picnics on the grass this year eh...

The heavy rain and now sun has really helped the grass, hopefully now we will have a summer of rain and sun to keep the grass in tip top condition.
