Not having been there for years I took my kids down to have a picnic and see the river. It such a beautiful spot but gee they have let it run down so badly it is sad to see. There is rubbish everywhere, piles of bottles and broken glass, weeds and dead trees. The last time I was there was just after the fires and it seems they haven’t touched it since then, leaving the trees where they chopped them down and not even replacing any of the seating areas. Oh, they have put in a toilet and a sign, but that’s it.
And what’s with this “no-bin policy” that’s on the sign? Sounds like just a poor excuse not to have to pay someone to empty a bin now and then. I like on the signage how it says the closest drop-off point for rubbish is “Scollay St Tuggeranong or Mugga Lane”?!! Could they have picked a place any further away?
And of course half of the front gate is missing so that idiots can access it any time which makes the situation worse with evidence of campfires etc. Hope they fix that before the fire season starts…
I’m guessing the money used for any upkeep is going to the new arboretum but I wish they wouldn’t let existing sites like Kambah Pool be run down in the meantime.
