An area created to give visitors a place to contemplate nature has had an unintended consequence. Some tend to do so while eating but they don’t take the wrappers and cans home with them. It doesn’t seem to matter how many bins are provided, scenes like this often greet walkers and cyclists. The park rangers do their best but if food scraps are left behind they attract rats and foxes who are capable of pulling litter out of the bins. As for the chalk arrow, they have appeared all over the area recently.
