Plaudits for Unley’s latest park.

November 17, 2016

Just back from the official launch of the latest bit of greenery to be added to the city’s sparse supply of open space.

OK, so it cost more than a few dollars to acquire the former plant nursery on Katherine Street in Fullarton, but the result is a great testimonial to the creators of the park which was officially declared “open for business” by Mayor Lachlan Clyne.

“Grumpy” was there in his capacity as one of the two local  ward Councillors, and resisted all tempting offers of a bounce on one of the jumping platforms. Also present were co-Councillor John Koumi, Deputy Mayor Rabbitt , and Councillors Don Palmer, Anthony  Lapidge and Peter Hughes.

All we need to do now is to make a concerted effort to return to my pet project…the transformation of the many “dead end” streets scattered throughout the Council area into “pocket parks”. This would go a long way towards the aim of increasing the city’s green space, which stands at a measly two percent or so,the lowest in the whole metropolitan area.

It really is a no-brainer, and for the life of me I cannot understand why the idea has , for so long, been given the cold shoulder.
