Parade Gardens needs a paint job!

Bath’s Parade Gardens have never looked better as the growing year gets underway but all that hard Parks Department labour is making the two ‘blots on the landscape’ stand out even more.

Maybe they could pass it off as King Edgar’s tomb?

The ugly  and ‘temporary’ electricity substation looks like a giant wheelie bin without its wheels.

Meanwhile the boarding – in between the columns fronting the higher levels of Grand Parade – is dull and lifeless.

Dull ‘temporary’ screening that could do with a face-lift!

Surely an opportunity here for local artists to work their magic in some way. Make these arid objects amongst the greenery stand out for all the right reasons!
