Caravans moved on from Riverside Nature Park

The travelling persons' caravans that have filled the Riverside Nature Park’s car park over the past week finally moved away this morning - see restored car park above.

I am pleased that local people will again be able to use the car park to visit the nature park.   The car park should never have been used as an unofficial caravan park, particularly as the City Council does provide a proper serviced site for the travelling community at Balmuir Wood near Tealing.

I have been in touch with the City Council’s Environment Department about ensuring the car park is henceforth properly secured out of hours to hopefully avoid a repetition of this.   There's some rubbish left (see above right) and the Environment Department will have this removed.
