John Hargreaves has announced that the survey he commissioned has duly reported back that Canberrans are thrilled with the state of their parks. Sadly it would seem the survey didn’t run to ovals and other public spaces which generally fill the park-like space in our minds.
Apparently 11.9 million visits were made to “Canberraâ€™s town and district parks in 2005-06” (so the stats are only to the end of the last financial year nine months ago?)
There was one interesting tid-bit: Black Mountain Peninsular, Weston park and Glebe Park are the most visited parks in Canberra. Do they count BMP’s nocturnal visitors in these numbers? Personally I’m surprised the John Knight park didn’t do better.
