A big change 1960s to 2016 (2)

What we know about this image :

This image taken in September 2016 is from the same spot as (1) The pond has been filled in, the rockeries are overgrown and no longer tended, tarmac has replaced the crazy paving and the fairy steps are virtually gone. The more rustic benches have been replaced by low maintenance, vandal proof and ugly metal structures. 

The rocks in the foreground are man made and part of an adventure playground. The fairy steps behind the photographer are no more and are steps to  a tubular slide which is at times broken. The view is a fairly attractive open space and the trees are beautiful, but sadly, so very different to view (1)
