Save Rushcutters Bay open space? No new developments at Rushcutters Bay Park

Dear councilors please dont change and destroy our beautiful Rushcutters Bay Park. I would like to propose that Rushcutters Bay park be listed as a heritage item as Sydney Council is proposing and no new development or reduction of open spaces be allowed. The proposed skateboard park is not in character with the park and will reduce the much needed open spaces from a already overcrowded area! Parking in the area is at a premium and we dont need more facilities being added that will not help local residents!

Why is this important?

The proposed developments eg skateboard park is not in character with the park and will reduce the much needed open spaces from an already overcrowded area! Parking in the area is at a premium and we don't need more facilities being added that will not help local residents! Already there is a large established community that will be deprived eg fitness trainers ,picnickers,yoga classes, dog walkers etc


Reasons for signing

  • Because grass open areas are nicer than concrete jungles
  • Disgraced by comments from Cr Marano that only the elderly with nothing else to do were opposed - my husband and I are in our mid-30s and are opposed to this development and horrified that a heritage order could be overturned!
  • All of you guys that are against a skatepark being built are all old people and people that think Rushcutters Bay Park is their own private backyard. The park has a fitness area and playground which mostly little kids use. Can’t we youths have a say on the park and have what we wanted at the park which is a skatepark and a basketball court. The council states zero tree removal and that it would take up a small percentage of the park.
