We want the park protected from inappropriate development, inappropriate use and with high regard for protecting the environment and ecology.
We monitor the park boundaries and lobby against development which would reduce the area of the park.
As regular users of the park we observe park management and maintenance, and campaign for best practice.
We aim to encourage appropriate use of and events in the park, to facilitate other park user organisations and to encourage new visitors.
We identify areas of improvement for the park and work to improve this enormous asset for all the community.
