Unley’s newest park sparks ideas.

September 18, 2015

With a much better-than-average public response of twenty percent to a community consultation process, the residents surrounding the latest addition  to Unley’s sparse open space have come up with a whole raft of ideas for the Katherine Street local park.

A letter distribution to homes within  400metres of the site (plus a gentle letterbox reminder from “Grumpy” in his role as local Councillor). attracted 161 responses. Top of the list, with 34 replies, was the idea of fruit trees, with another 19 plumping for deciduous trees and 16 for a garden bed.

Other ideas ranged from a tennis court, while eight respondents saw the need for toilets. seven liked the idea of gym equipment and six a bbq.

Given the effectiveness of the first   mail-out, another letter will be distributed advising residents of drop-in sessions on site and formal meetings at Fullarton Community Centre.
