Save Gardiner Park
Gardiner Park is an 86 year old park in the Sydney suburb of Banksia, south of the CBD and is zoned RE1, Recreational. It was opened in 1935 as part of a work relief scheme during the depression.
Without public consultation, Bayside Council will use $3 million of community money to upgrade this natural park to synthetic. Against the zoning it will now favour only one sport, Soccer, and alienate all other activities. The synthetic field will sit 1.2 metres higher than the current field as it sits in a floodway, will have a 1.2m surrounding fence and 3 x 6m high screens at the goal ends. Open space will become enclosed space.
