Pretty short sighted from the council. It's possible that a popular parkrun would lead to additional maintenance, but it sounds like they've just identified something they can whack a levy on.
If they try and force it through I imagine that parkrun will just stop, but it'd be amusing to see them attempt to charge individual runners for using the park. It could create a whole argument about what constitutes walking/jogging/running!
