Katy Gallagher is tossing around the idea of moving the iconic 100 year old merry-go-round from civic to somewhere else, reports ABC News.
“It gets a bit of an uptake of passengers on the weekends but I walked past it the other day during the week and there was no one on it,” she said.
“I thought ‘gee I wonder if there’s a better place for this merry-go-round’.
“So perhaps we could look at something for its 100th birthday.”
Personally I quite like the fact that we have a merry-go-round in the middle of the city.
I would be sad to see it go, but if more people used it in its new home perhaps it would be worth it.
Still I wonder what caused Katy’s changed feelings towards the merry-go-round.
In September last year our chief minister called the merry-go-round the “iconic heart of our city centre” while announcing that the contract to run it was being given to LEAD an organisation that provides people with disabilities ongoing employment.
So one wonders where we should keep the city’s iconic heart, if not in the heart of the city?
