At the first public meeting at St John’s Church, several children made posters or drew pictures of their ideal park while their grown-ups were at the meeting.

This was the starting point for the impromptu focus group:

“We want to keep our park!” says Thea

Thea wants to have monkey bars, a zip wire, swings, a climbing frame and a slide.

She says ” We want to keep our park!”.


 

"We don't want houses on our park! We want it to be full of happy people we also want it to be safe."

“We don’t want houses on our park! We want it to be full of happy people we also want it to be safe.”

Lina wants new play equipment and sports pitches as well as grass, flowers and plants.

She doesn’t want dogs pooing and she doesn’t want houses on the park.

Eris has gone into lots of detail about the type of things that would be included in the skate park and parkour park.

An outdoor gym, bigger climbing frame and a grass football pitch are also on the wishlist.

Hannah’s pictures show a skate park, aquarium, zip wire, swimming facilities (or a place to get changed) and a water gun.

Also, table tennis, a lake, a cafe, dog agility course, a butterfly house and a mini race track.


Some children decided to make a poster to show how they felt about the threat to the park.

As you can see, the local children are very passionate about Onchan Park. They see it as theirs, and really enjoy playing, spending time and relaxing in the Park with their family and friends.
Please keep your eyes peeled on this post. We’re looking forward to sharing more of our children’s ideas, plans and favourite activities in the Park.
See you soon!
