WHAT YOU SAID
WE ASKED READERS IF THEY THOUGHT THE PROPOSED MILLION-DOLLAR PLAYGROUND FOR DAWSON MALL WAS A GOOD IDEA
We need outdoor markets in Mt Druitt. The mall would be perfect for it, between the Asian grocer and the secondhand store, but not on the walkways, that should be clear for walkers.
NATE NELSON I worked as a guard at that Westfield. The Thursday night youth activities were good in theory, but what it did was bring teenage gangs together to join as one and gave them more strength.
TREV SMITH What a waste of money! Will cost more to patrol it, clean it and ensure it is safe. Who would let their kids play there?
DEIDRE BULLIMORE We need lots of police on the beat day and night before we think about fixing the place up. What’s the use of a playground if its covered with some junkie’s urine?
MARIE MURA It may attract the right type of people and make it less difficult for junkies doing their deals. Give kids something more to do than just tag stuff.
