One of my favourite parks is Byrant Park (P.S best public toilets around!). One of the many features I love is the “Reading Room”. Magazines, books for adults and kids in a park! Sure some people bring their own reading material but for those who don’t, it’s a simple and great idea. Takes little space, seems to run on an honour system, and if anyone was really going to steal from there it would not be a huge financial loss. More parks could have this – imagine the libraries, book stores or Lifeline like stores you could partner to do this.
