No lighting on path from Poverest park to allotments

This photo was taken at 16.55 on the pathway from the car park in Poverest park down to the allotments on Footbury Hill Road. I was going to pick up my 11 year old son who needs to walk back from school after getting off the bus. How can there be no lighting AT ALL, this is disgraceful. It is such a well used path through that park, with many families having no option but to use it to get home. I feel anxious and on edge every night when I meet my Son off the bus. Also, I know that a young girl was also attacked near the allotments not so long ago, and that was before it was this dark. Please please can you use some of your budget to install a few lampposts, I do not understand why there is lighting from Perry Hall school through the middle of the park past the tennis courts and not on this pathway? Even using a torch it is really scary
