We are sorry that at the moment Tideford play park remains
closed. We understand this is upsetting and frustrating for those who
want to use it. The difficulty is that some of
the equipment is, at present, unsafe to use. We cannot allow use when
there is a safety issue, not least because our insurance would not cover
any accidents. We are doing what we can, but have yet to finalise the
new lease from Port Eliot. We are in active negotiations, and hope that
the new lease can soon be granted without much further delay. As soon as
it is, we will be able to put some money into making the equipment
safe and will then be able to re-open the park. (15 January 2021).
