Falmouth Packet: New 38,000 play park to officially open in Helston tomorrow New 38,000 play park to officially open in Helston tomorrow

A £38,000 play park will be officially opened in Helston this Saturday at noon.

Work installing the new equipment at the Carey Parc Play Area was completed last week.

The project has been led by Helston Town Council’s play and young people committee.

As well as new equipment and safety surfacing, the existing paved area will be washed down and re-pointed in time for Saturday’s event. The council will also be installing two picnic tables, a waste bin and notice board.

The park is looking good, and my kids enjoy it. The official opening might not be until tomorrow, but it's been open to play in for a week or so now.

However, aside from the housing and the landscape, it looks *nothing* like the picture above. I understand proposals and artists impressions, but this is worse than fast food photos of burgers vs. the actual product. It's like someone showed an artist a picture of the bare area and said "Draw us a park here. No, you can't see the actual plans, just make it colourful and full of happy people".

Honestly, it shows the disconnect between what's in people's heads and actual reality. Perhaps they should study Father Dougal McGuire's diagram a little harder.

Coming back to reality, it's a nice park; go play there.
