Brekkie at Brookie - May 2010
On Saturday 1 May, about 150 people met for breakfast on the Oval to talk about the future of Brookvale Park. With the Rotary Club handing out bacon and egg sandwiches hot off the BBQ, St Augustines distributing juice and banana bread and the coffee machine on full speed the stage was set for a big community conversation about Brookie! Mayor Regan opened the event and reassured fans that the current $10 million funding will be spent over the coming years and that the focus of consultation is on how to fund future renewal of the Oval’s facilities. Participant discussion focussed on:
- What is important about the future of Brookvale Park and why?
- Thinking about Brookvale Park, what should be kept and what should change?
- How could Brookvale Park better contribute to the community?
- How could funding be increased for Brookvale Park?
Lots of good ideas were raised and are now being considered as the consultation process moves forward.
