When there’s a large event in North Hagley Park they close off some of the public parking beside the Botanic Gardens.
Saturday, when the Beer Festival was on, was the second time I’ve struck this. The sign says “Club Members Only”. I presume the event organisers pay well for this privilege, but I object to the public being denied the chance to park beside the gardens.
“People expect to park their car
and not to have to walk so far.”
