Enfield council destroying our parks

After living 12 years in the borough I thought Enfield council surpassed themselves with the environmental eye sore that are the cycle lanes - frequented by litter. the odd skate boarder and one cyclist every few weeks - if you're lucky enough to see one. For this venture they ripped out all of our trees and replaced them with concrete slabs. The next environmental tragedy was the ripping out of all of the trees at the canal on green lanes - and demolishing all of the nests in the mean time. The protection for the ducks now resting by the open street and dangerous driving on green lanes is a disaster waiting to happen. But all of this was not enough to destroy the green environment of Winchmire Hill - today I was informed the peaceful lake at Grovelands was another green space the council have set out to destroy .... By filling it with giant yellow plastic ducks - and calling it a boating lake. If you've ever seen the pollution at the Alexandra Palace boating lake. you will see the future of Grovelands. This latest loss is devastating - the birds will disappear and there will too much litter for residents to clear - as we currently have to in the absence of anyone from the council to clean the park. No doubt more trees will be desecrated to make space for this I'll thought venture. And there has been no local consultation. Grovelands park is allegedly protected.
