Lake Dickson!

By johnboy 24 October 2006 24

Quietly, and with minimal expenditure, the Stanhope Government has given Canberra another lake, this time in Dickson.

What a lesser Government would achieve through hard work, dollars spent, and a media flourish our superior Government has managed through poor maintenance and neglect.

I realise it’s in a tricky location. Off in the uncharted wilds right next to Northbourne Avenue and next to an ambulance station one can sympathise with Urban Service’s difficulties in getting to the site.

By way of consolation, at least the ducks seem to like it.

What’s Your opinion?

Cycled past this morning and it was cleared.

Curiously, when drivinf to work this morning I had a quick glance over at the drain and it appeared to have been cleared!

Can anyone confirm this?

If so, I believe RA has performed a credible community service by alerting those responsible as to the problem and as such having it rectified.

“That’s not a trolley.
It’s an ingenious fish trap so locals can catch carp. “

Its not a carp trap, it’s a lure collector. The basic principle is you chuck it in the drink, fishermen snag up on it, then a week later you haul it out and its covered with lures.

If you want carp, head down to the turd pond @ sundown and fly fish with a small brown nymph. The carp are starting to surface feed on tiny insects. There’s some metre+ mongrels in there. Better fight than those manky trout things.

Doesn’t the Dickson noodle house get some of its produce from there?
