Take a walk on the wild side

Let's go for a walk in Lloyd Park, Walthamstow.

Make your way in from the Brettenham Road entrance, past a mattress, somebody's wildly overgrown hedge, and a wall of graffitti. And then continue (below).

The first thing you'll see is an information board, which supplies helpful information about park opening times:

Relax on the attractive seating:

Another helpful information board:

In the photograph below (of a third information board, near the Forest Road entrance to the park) you can just about make out through the graffitti the explanation:
Service Standards for Parks and Open Spaces: "The majority of Greenspace sites are not staffed"

Not on patrol, then...

Lloyd Park is the home of the William Morris Gallery, which has made this crap Council famous.
