Signage now up, honestly not as nice as I thought it would be.
Looks so bad. Ruins the whole building.

It's an El Nina year, so there has been more rain. Also, those parts of the parklands have been upgraded over the last few years, so they are being watered on a regular basis.

Yeah most of that grass in view is used as sports playing fields so is kept in good condition.

I noticed last time I was in Adelaide there appeared some sort of wetlands do on the corner parkland by port road opposite the old Ice Arena (but I believe they actually restored that area maybe 15 years ago?) - is that used for the irrigation?

I remember playing high school cricket around there in the 90s and during summer the fields were so hard and dry you half expected to find a baby brown if you grassed a catch :lol:

Wasting 3 frontages of an island site on car park is pretty disappointing
