When you think of cities you don't tend to think of big open grassy areas. It's one of the main reasons all my countryside preferring friends cite as their reasons for preferring to live out of town. However no matter what city you're in you'll find a wide stretch of grass somewhere.
A walk through here did bring back some childhood memories, primarily the maze. It's a bit upsetting to see it's no longer being manned as once upon timed 'going to the maze at Hazelhead' was seen as a good day out. However, someone still cuts back the hedges and you can still go in have a wonder about. I did kind of want to explore properly but my mum didn't fancy having to come in and find me ha.
I didn't get any pictures on DLSR but Hazelhead Park also hosts the memorial for The Piper Alpha disaster. Back in 1988 an oil platform in the North-Sea exploded and killed 167 people included rescue vessel workers and some bodies were never recovered. The picture above however is of a new 'memory path' where members of the public can have a message for a deceased loved one engraved onto one of the slabs.
