Residents in Glenelg are not happy about the current state of Colley Reserve - but it seems help is already on the way.
A section of the grass in the park has been destroyed after an inflatable waterslide was set up for six weeks over summer.
“It’s disgusting that our community reserves are being farmed out to commercial operations,” Marina East apartment resident Liam Hanna told The Advertiser. “This is the result we get.”
The council took to Twitter to demonstrate that the grass was already being repaired now that the slide has been removed.
“The affected section of Colley Reserve will be bunted off for two to three weeks while the turf settles in and starts growing,” the council’s acting community services manager, Marnie Lock told The Advertiser.
The inflatable slide was moved from last year’s location in front of the Glenelg Surf Life Saving Club after members complained it was blocking both views and access to the beach.
