My name is Andre Scoville and I am Morriston's historian. I'm 36 and keen to make Morriston Park a great park as it used to be.
I have started the Morriston Facebook site where I have posted many photograph from 10,000+ images of Morriston including the Park from the 1920s to September 2009 -

The Park used to be well-used and many people have good memories of the open-air baths.
I visited the park last month (September 2009) and walked to the top of the park. I sat down on quite an uncomfortable bench and looked over at a superb view over Morriston, Llansamlet & Clydach.
The walks are lovely, the views are stunning and the flowers around the cenotaph are a credit to the gardeners responsible for this.
However, the murky waters where the swans and ducks swim isn't very attractive.
Apart from the children's play area - what else is there in Morriston Park?

Morriston Park is such a vast space, it could have easily housed a sports centre with swimming pool - and still kept the charm of the park. Without money being generated into the park, I don't know how the park can improve. Many years ago there was a bandstand - well, the modern version would be a stage - where Morriston people (and Swansea people as well) could come and listen to live performances. We certainly need to keep Morriston Park alive.

Are you the only historian in the village?

Keep the park natural, and yes keep the water clean, keep out sports centers but bring in nature walks and a bandstand where musicians can play and perhaps a little cafe. like the swiss cottage in singleton but with better food.
