On 5th July 2013 I wrote about the new public art at McNeilly Park in Marrickville.  See – http://bit.ly/10NRB3U

Marrickville Council put out a media release today about their approach to graffiti management in McNeilly Park.  From Council’s media release –

“The new garden beds will be planted out this weekend by Girl Guides & community members, who will be installing a range of native grasses.”  I presume the community members involved will be the families of the Girl Guides.

“By reducing the blank canvas & enhancing the overall look of the building it is hoped that there will be a reduction of unwanted graffiti in the area. Garden beds surrounding the building will further reduce access to the walls, & improved lighting will enhance safety.” 

This is the Girl Guides building in McNeilly Park. It is surrounded by a garden bed that will be planted out with a range of native grasses this coming Saturday.  Council hopes the grasses will further impede access to the walls to prevent graffiti.
