Bristol Plans Ban For Tree-Climbing, Skateboarding And 'annoying' Football

Recommended Posts

One of the UK's most vibrant and outdoorsy cities has been accused of trying to clamp down on al fresco fun by proposing bans ranging from tree-climbing to the lighting of barbecues in more than 200 parks and open spaces.

Bristol city council has drawn up a series of suggested new bylaws that also covers skateboarding or playing football in an "annoying" way and critics claim they could even prevent children's sun tents or windbreaks being set up.

The council, which is headed by independent directly-elected mayor George Ferguson, said the idea was to tackle "antisocial and nuisance behaviours that are adversely affecting our communities".

It's like living in a police state.

Well the Swiss parks are a bit police-state-ish, and they're a lot better than parks in England, in general.

Is that cos they're not full of kids swinging on trees until they break and lads skateboarding along pedestrian paths at 90 miles an hour?

Among other things, yes.

Money plays a role, to be fair, I have no idea what the budget for the parks is in Geneva but it must be very large.

It's hardly antisocial behaviour! It's what kids do! :o
