£2.50 Tax to Take Your Kids to UK Public Park

Parents will be hit with a £2.50 charge for their children to use an adventure playground in a 'tax on fun'.

The pilot scheme at Battersea Park in Central London will see the charge levied at weekends on five-to 16-year-olds.

It comes as boroughs in the city are being forced to make cuts of around £500million this year after a reduction in grants.'

  1. Well, I think the whole thing is ridiculous, personally.

    Some people use parks because they have no green space or gardens of their own. Some people go to parks for quiet reflection or general things like walking their dogs.

    I didn't know you could tax nature...learned something new today.


Thanks for your comment it is much appreciated.
