Repairing the surface of Canavan Gracie Recreational Reserve is the current highest priority for council’s Bellvista Gardening Team. A few mls of recent overnight rain were again enough to delay repairs.
The team want to be absolutely sure the surface is dry enough to get the truck onto the damaged area to carry out repairs and not have more damage caused.
Alternate equipment was considered but they were unable to get the use of the machinery they wanted in the immediate future.
Their other hassle at the moment is the misuse of doggy bags. Owners pick up their pet’s doings OK but then dump the bag in the garden or behind some wall. Dumping it in the garden means it all takes longer to degrade.
If you have a pet, take on the responsibility that comes with pet ownership and use a doggy bag as required but then place the bag into a suitable bin!
Everyone looks forward to Gracie Canavan Recreational Park getting back to its best.
In all, three parks were targeted in the recent spate of vandalism. The hoons travelled from one park to the next and obviously knew exactly where the parks were. This tends to throw suspicion onto someone within our own community with plenty of local knowledge. This makes it an even more appalling act of senseless vandalism.
