Play equipment in Grange Lane, Acomb has been labelled as “dangerous” by parents due a lack of maintenance.
Earlier today two pieces of play equipment were unusable with one – a wire ride – potentially hazardous for users.
Weeds and nettles were growing up through another piece of equipment making use impractical.
The area was badly littered.
The council has been heavily criticised in the past for failing to secure the playground against dogs.
Fouling continues to be an issue.
