Plan of the Park
Also, roundworm eggs in dogs' faeces can survive for up to 5 years in the soil. If they get into a person's system, they can cause total blindness - as with the toddler who lost the sight of an eye (click here) and a woman who had to have an eye removed 30 years after becoming infected (click here).

Please don't bring any plants from your garden ponds to Milham Ford Park, no matter how attractive you might think they would be there - see 'Be Plant Wise' article.
