The Bike Library, located in a shipping container within the park grounds, gives out bikes to people free of charge to ride for up to four weeks and has proved popular with locals young and old.

The facility even went so far as to create a bike tool station at the site, for people to carry out simple maintenance works – including putting air into their tyres.

Unfortunately the bike pumped attachment has now been ripped off from its fitting and stolen.
