  • Gorgeous gum trees

    by Deborah Nottelling, 9 months ago

    I live nearby and my dog always leads me to the park.  It is wonderful to live near so many beautiful old gum trees.  I hope they survive in the plans to make a new playground.  My neighbour recently told me that water was redirected from the park to the golf course years ago.  Is this true or idle gossip.  I hope the water could be sent back to the trees please!
