Low hanging braches from a public tree has caused health & safety problems for my children playing in the garden

There are a number of low hanging braches from the large public tree (located around the corner of south hill road and cumberland road, it's large so cannot be missed) that go into my garden and many horse chestnuts have drop from those branches. My son has been hit twice last week when playing in the garden. It has become a problem when we go into autumn. It will be much appreciated if this could be pruned and low branches removed. It's ok to access my garden if needed. Thanks.
