Commenting on the story: Who will stop Adelaide’s incremental march towards sameness?

Why not place the parklands on the heritage list? Would that not stop developments from slowly eroding them? Richard Trott

We must keep the Adelaide parklands at all costs.

We are so lucky to have them and have already had too much encroachment into them over the years. Marilyn Henderson

Cricket and soccer are played year round on Park 2, North Adelaide.

I cannot see  the Crows allowing two all weather  cricket wickets on their main training oval. This will mean a loss of two cricket/soccer pitches.

The Crows have been promised $15,000,000 by the Liberal Party (before the last federal election) to assist with a move nearer to the city. The Labor Party has matched this promise.

Now politicians from both parties find themselves unable to speak out against the Crows bid to move to the North Adelaide Aquatic Centre for fear of losing Crows supporters votes.

A solution that would (hopefully) not offend Crows voters, would be for politicians suggest that the Adelaide City Council  apply to the Federal and State governments for the funds rebuild the Aquatic Centre. Lets say $15,000,000. – Ernest Hamilton

Commenting on the story: Govt halves primary school bike safety program

Can the government not see the problems with halving the primary school bike safety programme?  A child who can get to school safely can get to school independently, obviating the need to be driven to school – and a lot of other places too!

There are benefits across the board with this – environmental, physical, social and emotional – the list goes on.

Being able to go to school independently is a big win for a child in developmental terms. Wins like this snowball, but not just for the child.  The whole community benefits as communities become better connected and therefore more resilient.

It’s so disappointing to be governed by people who seem to be one trick ponies when it comes to jobs and the economy. If you don’t wear a hard hat, you are simply not on their radar.

Perhaps we need to get every parent who wants their child to be able to access this programme to the steps of Parliament house, complete with their bike next Friday afternoon? BYO hard hat. – Joanna Wells
