  • CRICKET NETS PURLEESE!

    by Adam, over 2 years ago

    My son aged 13 and I go there to play cricket. We use the tennis court when we can (*and repeadedly have to cede to those going to play tennis) but would LUURVE cricket nets.We often set up games with others. We have had up to 10 neighbourhood kids going for it. You have room for tennis, handball and even basketball....wot U got against cricket eh? The eastern end is hardly used and could take a single or double cricket net without compromising trees.How about it Charles Sturt ? Space for representing an iconic Aussie sport? Why nets you ask?... Continue reading

  • Pristine vs Wild

    by Rowan, over 2 years ago

    My neighbour and I have been having an interesting discussion about the balance between 'raw'/'wild' places and 'new'/manicured' ones. Both of us love parks that are like little a little bush oasis in the city, but equally it is really important to have great play spaces for kids and picnic areas, etc.

    McInerney Reserve should be upgraded. I have seen some stunning parks around Adelaide, but a high quality park would be very much appreciated in West Croydon/Kilkenny. I think that a space that can draw kids and families outside and encourage neighbours to meet is... Continue reading

  • A natural Oasis

    by Deanna, over 2 years ago

    I walk through the park in the mornings when I walk my nephews to school, I've had bbqs there with friends and played soccer/played on playground, and I attended the recent community markets there. I have been a frequent visitor to the area for years, but since moving into the area recently I hope to make more use of this park. I'm all up for an upgrade that helps makes it more user-friendly for different ages/people/events, but I hope that it doesn't get too over manicured.... the natural bush/scrub look and feel to me is important. I like having a... Continue reading

  • We love it but look forward to the upgrade!

    by CateM, over 2 years ago

    We use McInerney Reserve with our almost 3 year old son. I believe the park has all the good elements of a good community space, it just needs an update and rearrangement of play equipment and facilities. I have met people passionate about environmental issues in the area and others who were happy to share their experiences with older kids using the park. We don't have a dog but enjoy having dogs around at the park. The other thing we enjoy is a bit of trainspotting. Train drivers often see us and toot and wave which my son absolutely loves.

  • A place to meet other locals

    by scroser, over 2 years ago

    I moved to Charles Sturt Council area about 10 months ago, knowing very few people here.

    I had heard about the Produce Swap, and eventually found it at McInerny Reserve on the first Saturday of the month. I took some excess produce along, and others came along also. They made me a name tag, and we chatted over a cuppa before the swap took place.

    That was really good for me. I felt at home here, part of the community.

    There were people of all ages from a few months, still in Mother/s arms, to an older chap on his... Continue reading

  • West Croydon Fruit and Veggie Swap

    by Francoise, over 2 years ago

    The West Croydon Fruit and Veggie Swap was started by local resident Julietta nearly 10 years ago. She saw a need for people to come together and share excess produce from their gardens and just went ahead and started the Swap. When Julietta decided to take a step back I put up my hand to take over its coordination.

    The Swap meets every Saturday morning in McInerney Reserve from January to Easter. We bring produce we have grown at home or that someone else we know has grown and given us. We also bring seeds and seedlings; we swap information,... Continue reading
