Cham­ber­lain Park

Central Leader - - LETTERS -

I at­tended a re­cent open day at Cham­ber­lain Park Golf Course.

This event was put on by the Al­bert-Eden Lo­cal Board to gauge peo­ple’s feel­ings on what changes they would like to see at Cham­ber­lain Park.

We stuck yel­low dots on the pic­tures of what ac­tiv­i­ties and fea­tures we would like to see.

Even chil­dren were al­lowed to stick on their yel­low dots.

This open day was hastily put to­gether and not widely ad­ver­tised. My im­me­di­ate neigh­bours did not know about it.

Cham­ber­lain Park is a beau­ti­ful, well used pub­lic golf course.

When I visit other green spa­ces around Auck­land, such as Corn­wall Park, Western Springs and the Re­gional Parks, I give thanks to our for­ward think­ing fore­fa­thers.

I want to see Cham­ber­lain Park re­main an 18 hole golf course with more of an em­pha­sis put on chil­dren’s and learn­ers’ golf.

I also un­der­stand that within the course there is an area where walk­ers and jog­gers could safely ex­er­cise.

Mt Al­bert is still in the midst of huge mo­tor­way earth­works.

We have al­ready lost our share of es­tab­lished trees and green space.

I want to see Cham­ber­lain Park re­main as it is.
