"So many people want to see the park and to know why it is changing because they loved it so much when they were last here. Of course, when you take away the toilets, shops, the McDonald's and all the people, what you end up with is concrete. Part of the chance to visit is for people to understand that new things are coming but that it looks like this at the moment.It is also to try and make sure they understand that where the venues are changing they are evolving for people to use.
