Ms Anne Moffat
Chief Executive Officer
Grove Park Council

Grove Park SA 5098

Dear Ms Moffat, 

The council has announced that the old town hall will be demolished. As a young adult of the Grove Park community, I am writing to suggest building a park on the old site in Market Square.

Although our Grove Park community has a high number of elderly people as well as children, there is no park in this area. Local people need a safe space for walking, exercise and other outside activities. Without such a space, children develop the habit of watching television or playing computer games rather than getting healthy exercise. As a result, obesity is becoming a big issue for our community.

Furthermore, the local health care centre is also concerned that the rate of sick elderly people in our community is increasing quickly due to the lack of exercise facilities. Unfortunately for many elderly people, the only local entertainment is the hotel, where people can either gamble on poker machines or dine on unhealthy food. A park where people can relax or exercise is much needed in our community.

I strongly recommend that a park with facilities which will support outdoor activities should be developed in order to improve the health and wellbeing of our elderly and young citizens.

Yours sincerely,

Trinh Le
