I lived in Goole after moving from Howden for 15 years. Some of my family are still there. It was dying a slow when I was there but now appears to have improved on many fronts. I had 7 happy years working for Timms Mill, sad to see it gone, what happened?

Boothferry Road Junior School used West Park for games(football) in the '50's although the changing room near the swings was open fronted.The grass lawn tennis courts were very well kept with its own clubhouse.

Hello Keith On a recent visit to Goole Both my wife and I commented on the rejuvenated appearance of the park.Also the riverside Park. However the Cemetery may have suffered and again looks neglected. The chapel has a fine crop of Elderberry on the roof. But my family graves and others are being damaged by careless strimming.I had to search for the corner stones of my Grandfathers grave.found buried under a heap of Hay
I also believe West Park is not the place for a Circus Who will pay for the massive clean up?

Had a walk through West Park , what shame something could not have been done with the Paddling/Boating pool.

Keith, it is a shame if West Park has become neglected. When I was a kid it was a favourite haunt, though a traipse to get there for little legs back then. We used to splash about on the pool. God knows what would have been thrown in there in later years.
Of course, we didn’t go there on Sundays: the gates were locked!

Oh yes, paddling in that pond. Do you remember the bottom of the pond was covered in green slime which made it certain you would slip over and fall in. Another occasion there was go -cart racing in the Park,with little or no safety precautions, and one child was injured when one of the go carts came off the track. More recently, within the last ten years, I visited the park on bonfire night and witnessed a fantastic and very professional firework display. The park is a great resource.
