The magic lights in Wake Green Park will light your way!

I took a very short video of the lights in the main garage in Wake Green Park.

A sensor notices when someone/a car is in the area, and full lighting comes on. Clever!




Obviously this saves energy when the garages are not in use, thus keep the 'green' in Wake Green Park! :)

PS. There's some quite nice birdsong in the background of the video! We have several bird boxes around the park. I'll blog about them soon.

Spring has sprung on Wake Green Park!

The first signs of Spring are here on Wake Green Park.

Amongst the new flowers popping up all over the park's ground are Primroses, crocuses, and daisies.

They mark the change of the season and the dashes of colour make a welcome sight after the long white winter we have had!







A lot of residents have balconies. What do you grow on your balcony? Do you have boxes or do you prefer plant pots? Are you growing anything unusual, perhaps vegetables or herbs? Do you put food out for the birds, or even have a little bird bath? Drop me a line hello@karenstrunks.com
In the next few weeks I'll be interviewing Martin, our gardener, about his recommendations for brightening up our balconies.

New Bench - take the weight off....

We have a new addition to the Wake Green Park bench family!

When I took this photo last weekend the bench was so new it still had it's wrapping on.




The yellow arrow indicates where you can find the new bench.





Benches began appearing in the park last year, and I believe we now have four of them. One outside of Bowens Court, one outside of Roberts Court, and another (which I haven't been to see yet) which I believe is in the area of the yellow circle. UPDATE: The bench is outside the Royston Court Area.

Bowens Court Bench


Now the fairer weather is coming, I'm sure the benches will be a popular resting place. Grab a coffee and a book and relax in your extended garden.

New Security Cameras are being installed in Wake Green Park

It seems that Wake Green Park is having some new security cameras installed.

You may have noticed on your way in and out of the main entrance areas that are being dug up.



This is going to be the base for the new camera that, according to the work man, will be a 360 degree camera! I believe this is a first for the park.


The red cross indicates where the 360 degree camera is going to be installed, and the yellow cross indicates where a new static camera will be installed.
Obviously this is going to enhance the security at Wake Green Park. As well as other security cameras around the park, we also have a security guard that patrols the area, plus there is a neighbourhood watch scheme too and from time to time a police patrol will pop into the park and keep an eye on it.
It seems we have all the bases covered security wise, which I'm sure will give residents extra peace of mind.

Mole found in Wake Green Park!

If you ever see any damage to the lawn in Wake Green Park, you know who to blame!



I found the culprit hiding out in a rockery.....








Having very poor eyesight, he didn't see me sneak up on him with my camera.







I think there used to be a gnome or two living in that rockery. Perhaps the mole evicted them, or they have moved on to a bigger rockery location on the park. If you spot them, give me a shout. I would love to interview them! ;)
