Why is our council, so determind to keep concreting our parks, ok it could be asphalt/bitumen, still you can bet more grass will go?
Anyway if you don’t want more concrete poured in our parks, have your say.
For the amount of school areas that have easily accessible courts throughout our city, is there really a need to build more, not to mention the Frank Gibson Park Reserve?
