News about the parks - Regatta and Peacock
I think Peacock Park using the damaged grass as an excuse to keep out events is just to appease the complaining neighbors who don't like all the activity next door. Just a guess on my part. But less and less events are taking place in the park and in the Grove for that matter.
I had to laugh about something that happened at the Arts Festival. They didn't want to be part of the lawn in Peacock Park being torn-up by kids in the kiddie area, so they moved the kiddie area to the horseshoe area - the parking spaces at the end of McFarlane Road. So the kids were on zip lines, climbing walls and all sorts of things with cement below them to break their falls, not the precious Peacock Park grass.
At Regatta Park, complaints continue about lack of bathrooms, lack of comfortable park benches and lack of parking; recyclable containers for trash have also been requested.
