NoW Annandale are organising a "farewell picnic" for Buruwan Park 4-5pm Sunday 10th March 2019.
Come along and let the NSW Government, Westconnex and RMS know that you know that they are destroying a precious park, trees and habitat the the community has worked on for over 25 years.
Council has put up corflutes in the park to inform the hundreds of pedestrians, cyclists, light rail and bus passengers who use the park every day.
The RMS is yet to advise how pedestrians and cyclists will get to work, school and everywhere else they go via the park during construction and operation of the proposed road widening of the Crescent Annandale as part of Westconnex Stage 3.
There is an issue of trees being destroyed and increased heat island affect as well as over 25 years of Bush regeneration by volunteers.
