Heritage Lottery Fund warns parks at risk over cutbacks

A report from the Heritage Lottery Fund shows a growing risk to parks, with councils being forced to make budget cuts.

It warns they could become run down and "no go areas" or even be sold off and says the largest proportion of parks declining is in Wales, Scotland and the North West of England.

More than 60% of park managers in Wales expect a decline in their condition here.

Shaun Kiddell, the Heritage Lottery Fund's parks policy advisor, told BBC Radio Wales' Mai Davies that the public, charities and businesses need to work together and look for new ways of helping with their upkeep.
