Queens Park boating lake
« on: May 29, 2019, 08:57:27 PM »
When and why were the boats taken off the lake in Queens Park. When I was at Willies  1951-55 we spent many happy hours on the boats at lunchtime, in the winter when the lake was frozen over sliding on the ice was great fun, no “jobsworths” to worry about then back to school to dry the trousers by standing near to a radiator.. is Elf and safety responsible?

Boats are still available arent they, just only during certain months in the summer i think not all year round.

I don't go in the park much but also thought they still were available in school holidays?
Does the train still run?

Going back to the time geebee mentions there was also a small paddling pool in that area - that's long gone.

Again fairly sure the train still runs just only at times when its likely to be busy...things like school holidays etc.

Yes it does, I went past the other day late afternoon and they were putting it into its shed.
