We popped to Markeaton Park the other week. Derby Council have reinstalled the play area which was getting somewhat tired. The first stage was a new pirate ship installed last year which is great. The new update has fenced off a larger area, excluding dogs from most of the “Mundy Play Centre” and brought lots of picnic friendly grassy areas within the canine excluded zone, which I think is great.
They’ve mixed reusing some of the original play equipment with some new, the Spiders web (that I played on as a Child) has been expanded and is now a double header kinda thing, great, but they’ve removed the long twin side by side slides which is a real shame. These have been replaced by some new slides over by the pirate ship but there’s not the scope for slide races that there was before.
What I did spot was this rather handsome “Derby Parks” logo on a sign. I can’t find any more info about it, but it’s a good’un! I still love the Derby City Council logo too, but I wish they could stack the text.
Does anyone have any info on it? Who designed it? Where it’s used? Let me know in the comments!

It was refreshing to work with an experienced, professional graphic designer who quickly understood what we wanted to achieve at Scoops Diner. We provided the bare bones and Kieran fleshed it out to create a spectacular end product design. Aside from the graphic design, I found Kieran to be a warm, genuine, humorous and down to earth chap who pro-actively gave positive and constructive advice on other aspects of our business. I have already and will continue to recommend Kieran to other businesses for his design services work.
