Why has Adelaide lets its Parklands become wastelands? Every other Australian city manages to do it well. It is about time Adelaide caught up and realised the tourism / visitation attraction that the Parklands could become. It needs to transform into a safe and family friendly realm for all the public to enjoy all year around. Improve the amenity surrounding the whole of the CBD (north, south, east and west) as a pedestrian and cycling picnic loop, and gateway to arrival into Adelaide central.
