I TOOK my dog down to the Karijini Oval on Sunday in the early evening for a run on his lead and what a nice sight for a change.
There was a bloke and a woman having a snack near the play area; six children of varying ages and I would say varying nationalities were playing three on three basketball in the multi-use courts and two teenagers were practising American gridiron football throws.
It sure beat the constant view at the end of Boorabbin Place, Beedelup Close, both ends of Terra Close and other streets around that area of stolen shopping trolleys.
Let us hope the area around the Karijini pavilion, the play area, the basketball courts and the oval continue to be a safe and clean area than can be used for the enjoyment of the local population year round.
