Leave it alone

Auckland City Harbour News - - OPINION -

If the Al­bert-Eden Lo­cal Board’s area has the fewest sports ar­eas (not to be con­fused with many lo­cal parks, re­serves and open spa­ces) why would you want to place a Chi­nese gar­den on a longestab­lished Cham­ber­lain Park Golf Course? The ex­pres­sive gar­den pro­posal is just (for­give the pun) do­ing the rounds, surely?

We had a beau­ti­ful gar­dens site and venue at West­ern Springs.

Len Brown didn’t see fit to save that, but that would have been an ideal site. Ru­mours persist that Auck­land Coun­cil’s parks depart­ment has been pushed side­ways with its con­trol, op­er­a­tional man­age­ment of Cham­ber­lain Park by pres­sure for its lo­cal board en­gi­neer­ing lo­cal body elec­tions. And yet other ru­mours say the land is to be used for a spe­cial hous­ing area.

Please leave the present park alone, and no lo­cal elec­tion­eer­ing from a des­per­ate board and its chair­man.
