Keep Gough Whitlam Park and Waterworth Park for the Community
We, the residents of Canterbury City Council petition the Council to allow community groups and existing users, both active and passive, access to Waterworth Park now and ongoing.
A proposal which represents the interests of up to 8 organisations including Cooks River Titans Football Club, Wolli Creek Preservation Society, NSW Touch, etc has consistently been ignored with no good reason. Council must conduct a management plan along with community consultation on the whole Gough Whitlam Park/Waterworth Park precinct and make decisions on what will best serve the community.
Currently, all decisions on the Gough Whitlam Park/Waterworth Park precinct have been made with no plan of management nor any consultation with the community. Such decisions include a kids playground on Gough Whitlam Park, a bike park on Gough Whitlam Park and an Archery Range on Waterworth Park.
As the community we demand that we be heard and acknowledged by Councillors who were elected to represent us.
