Part of the path around the Wilderness Pond has been closed for several weeks after brambles and other plants took over during the warm, wet spell - but park rangers are clearing the area and it should be open as normal by the end of this week.
They will also cut back on brambles that have encroached on paths that have remained open.
One regular walker said: "It's been getting worse around there. We often walk across that area of the park and you have to dodge the brambles all the time. They're just at the right height to scratch a baby in a pushchair. A few years ago they spent millions on improving the park and now the paths are like this. It's a bit of a shame!"
