Cardiff Lib Dem Council wreck Bute Park

Happy New Year...
And Cardiff Council is planing more building in Bute Park - a visitor centre now ...........

I noticed in councils latest 'askcardiff' survey which popped through my letterbox after the date of return had expired.. there was a section on Bute Park -
Q37 on a scale of 1 to 5 with 1 being 'poor' and 5 being 'excellent' how would you rate the provision of the following services in Bute Park?
There follows a list of 21 things the first few are in their order...
Car parking
Transport links
Sign posting Lighting
Labelling of the arboretum
Condition of paths.....
Somebody tell Cardiffs lib Dem Council that People go the park to RELAX.  There was no mention of the most important component of an urban park - its greenery. And what about seating places.
The improvements users would like to see in urban parks include good design and management, but no questions on that! They did say that there is a £5.6 million restoration project sported by £3.1 million from Lottery Fund. But they didn't mention how much of that was spent on building a massive bridge to bring  articulated lorries into the park or building better roads for traffic. No chance of relaxing in Bute Park as you are always being harassed by traffic..disgrace.
