    The place looks great at night.

    Also, love them or hate them, the influx of pokemon players definitely make the place a lot more welcoming late night these days.

    Annoying as F though when trying to have a nice peaceful walk. Maybe look up once in a while. Idiots.

    That's a bit harsh I think, I've found the nerds and their phones very harmless, certainly less annoying than skateboarders.

    ^^ You're a hilarious mix of middle-aged man desperately trying to hold onto his youth and crotchety old man who doesn't get what the young people into at the same time.
    Giving less of a damn than ever… Can't laugh at the ignorant if you ignore them!

    When you get run into a dozen times or people almost step on your wee dog, you get ****** off.

    I figure it's the real Zombie Apocalypse: hunched over, unaware of their surroundings, shuffling along aimlessly (even into traffic), looking for brain...

    Actually... the lawn bowling club has had to tape off their lawn as these guys were walking all over it and damaging it.

    Yeah, I run through there down the hill under the train/high level and there is always a huge gathering around the lawn bowling place. Regardless, I've almost taken a few of them out when they cross my path oblivious to the fact that I'm running by on the sidewalk. I'd feel bad if I took someone out, but it isn't that hard to be aware of your surroundings...

    The first time I noticed, I thought lawn bowling had become wildly popular and the younger crowd had given it a go.

    Was there today as well Ian. Pokémon chasing people walking all over greens, all over grass everywhere at leg oblivious that lawn bowling was actually being setup/going on. They had to tape it off as you say. The entire pitch. I'll confirm that this trespassing was occurring today. The other day, they had a thousand people out there chasing Pokémon, which is nice that people are getting out and enjoying some sunshine. But try not to wreck facilities and interfere with others activities while doing it.
    I've lived here my whole life and have never seen people walking all over that pitch before . People had the decency to stay off it as its a facility for specific use.

    Pokémon specific use encourages and reinforces trespassing.

    ^Leg had some stained glass windows before but I wasn't familiar with the one in your photo. Was this a refit during the extensive Leg rehabilitation work?
