Orphanage opinions wanted.

June 6, 2014

Want to have your say on how Unley Council should handle the treatment of storm-water flows through Goodwood’s Orphanage Park?

If so, why not drop into the Tabor College Refectory between noon and on Saturday, June 21. and register your views on the      management of  the problem and the importance of recognising the heritage-listed stone lining of the creek and the natural ambience of the area.

For further information, please contact Unley Council on 83725111.

    I believe that the creek needs to be widened through the Orphanage to mitigate the risk of flooding. Perhaps the base could be a mix of slate and old red brick.
    Also there are some feral trees along the banks that need felling. They should be replaced by Red River gums.
    Yes, some may not like it, but we need to do all we can to reduce the risk of flooding.

      Sounds like a sensible proposal.
      Retaining the creek as it is now is not acceptable.
      This is where the big river red gums should be grown.

    Widening the creek and some big rocks and planting natives would make the creek look so nice.

    The creek there is terrible.
    Not attractive and a bit dangerous.
    Love the idea of widening the creek, brick pavers and slate on the bed, some big rocks on the banks and half a dozen big river gums.
    And, a rickety wooden arched footbridge for kids to play on.
    Just need ponds and tadpoles like in the old days.
