A survey about Frogs Copse, pictured, and Cutbush Hidden Pond urges residents to “Get involved, have your say and help to shape your local area!”

It explains:

“Southampton City Council is proposing some changes to Frogs Copse to improve the site for both wildlife and local residents. The proposals for the site include providing a series of additional informal play areas, an informal picnic area to take in the elevated views across the city, improved signage (linking Frogs Copse with other open spaces within the Townhill area) and woodland edge management to discourage fly-tipping.”

On Cutbush Hidden Pond it says:

“Cutbush pond, also known as Hidden pond and Meggeson Avenue pond, is a waterbody set within an extensive area of broad-leaved woodland on the northern edge of Meggeson Avenue, Townhill Park. The exact origins of the pond are not clear, but the pond appears on aerial photographs dating as far back as 1940. The pond is around 70 metres in perimeter, steep sided in places but shelving gently where it abuts the meadow to the north-west. The pond has great potential as a wildlife resource but also potentially as a location for school children to learn from.”

You can give information about your use of these two local areas, and any suggestions, via this Southampton City Council Townhill Park greens spaces survey, which it’s estimated will take about five minutes to complete.
