As residents living across from Walker Park, we are angered by the three-day soccer event played on Good Friday, Easter Saturday and Easter Sunday.
More than 250 people descended on the park beginning on Good Friday at 8.30am.
Residents put up with allday game noise, copious amounts of rubbish, orange peels in drains, glass beer bottles strewn on grass and food remains left behind, (not to mention soccer players in their undies changing their gear).
There were players blocking our driveways as they unloaded, among other things, the boxes of alcohol for consumption in an alcohol-prohibited park.
It made parking very difficult for us and we had to send our relatives back home because there was no parking available. The Auckland Council should not allow games to be played on public holidays or Sundays providing us some reprieve from the usual game noise and high traffic levels, and allow us the enjoyment of our residence and community on our holidays.
