Parkdale / Mentone Forshore
League members Cr King, Pam Wilcock, Mary Rimington and Ron Pearson had an on-site inspection with the City Engineers and landscape architect of the foreshore area to be reclaimed. The outcome of the meeting was generally satisfactory although there is still some concern about grading the clifftops and the use of rocks instead of timber to prevent further erosion. How- ever Council has agreed to leave the grassed area as open space with low growing shrubs.

A meeting is still to be arranged with M. Baker of the MMBW to discuss moving the freeway reservation to the western boundary of the Park.
