This was not a good advertisement for Springwood because visitors wanting to spend a few pleasant hours at the park went away in disgust (perhaps never to return). Furthermore, it was no longer safe for local children to play on the swings in the park because they were located between the 'summer houses' tenanted by the tramps. Parents were forced to warn their children away. A plea to the council had not remedied the situation thus residents were urged to apply to the local area League to allay the nuisance.
