Much of the SE parklands is flood-prone, yet little is done to utilise the water resource. Do what Salisbury Council has done. Extensive wetlands which combine water harvesting, habitat, amenity and recreation. The Laratinga wetland at Mount Barker is full of local residents out cycling and walking. Water is a key attractor, especially in a dry state like ours. Ecotourism possibilities. Cellar door and restarant overlooking the wetland as at Banrock Station?
