The illuminations may be brilliant but many residents are unable to see them because the only access to the park is in Whitburn Road, which is too far to walk for us pensioners who live near the other gates.
I know what I am talking about because I tried it and had to leave the park because my octogenarian legs would go no further.
It is also too far for the toddlers in the area.
Please, think again, whoever you are who made the ridiculous decision to close the other gates.
At least the main gate in Roker Park Road should be open.
