A group of Mt Albert residents are to meet at Fowlds Park on July 5 at 2.30pm to discuss plans to redevelop the park. Auckland Council recently applied for resource consent to upgrade the park in Western Springs Rd and build artificial turf on the existing upper field and netball courts. Public submissions close on July 13. The group plan to mark out the proposed field with barricade tape and build a replica of the proposed fourmetre retaining wall. They also plan to tie yellow ribbons to around 30 trees the council plans to cut down. Visit fowldspark.wordpress.com for more details.
