A wee hill

There is a lot of earth-moving in the Park. Some of it is housekeeping, storing topsoil, creating hard core, digging the SUDS system but some is creating the promised features. Near the path from Hamilton Drive to the rear entrance of St John’s Primary School there was a lot of activity which has now emerged as a new hill, Built with a core of clay, probably from the SUDS pond, it has now been iced over with topsoil and trees planted nearby.

This should be no surprise as it was clearly shown on the approved plans although few of us had done the calculations as to exact height and shape. In fact, for the mathematicians, it looks a bit like a sine curve or possibly a Gaussian distribution – whatever it is, it is evidence that the Council continues to keep its promises. What was in the plans is to be built.

A hill, not too far
