Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : July 23rd 2009
MB INNER WEST COURIER, Thursday, July 23, 2009 13 Burwood Mayor Lesley Furneaux-Cook inspects the damage at Grant Park, Enfield. Society's skidmarks Lana Lam RECKLESS drivers are de- stroying Grant Park in Enfield with high-speed burnouts that cost thou- sands of dollars to repair. Since January, Grant and Henley parks have been severely damaged five times, with drivers illegally entering the park and tear- ing up the grass. In July alone, Grant Park has been vandalised twice. ''They like it when it's wet, and that's when it really does damage to the grass,'' Burwood Mayor Lesley Furneaux-Cook said. ''For the past couple of years, it has been a problem: people coming onto the park and doing spinouts. ''We don't have much open space in Burwood. These irresponsible and reckless individuals need to be stopped from destroying our community areas.'' Cr Furneaux-Cook called on residents living near the park to notify the council or the police if they spotted illegal behaviour. Details of the car's regis- tration, make and model would be helpful, she said. The Burwood Mayor said council staff were consider- ing putting in a low fence around the park and a long- term solution would be to install CCTV security. The damage could cost up to $3000. www.innerwestcourier.com.au NEWS OPEN SATURDAY 22 AUGUST FROM 9AM DAY INFORMATION AFTERNOON WEDNESDAY 12 AUGUST 3.45PM TO 5PM
