I was really happy to see a new bubble/water bottle dispenser in Gough Whitlam Park. What makes this bubbler especially good is that there is a bowl at the bottom for dogs to be able to have a drink. Birds will also make use of it. The bottom bowl was full of water this afternoon.
If there is fresh water there will be also be birds & the presence of birds makes any park a much nicer place to be. At least Canterbury Council understands this.
There has been a significant reduction in birds in Tempe Reserve since Marrickville Council removed the tap & fresh water in March 2015. See – http://bit.ly/1JCVESS One of the main reasons we used to frequent this park was because we enjoy bird watching. The emptiness of birds is quite sad.
