    It is no longer an oval, it's a rectangle.

    The trees have grown.  The sausages were actually hot back then as you could buy them straight from the bar-b-que.

    I reckon Kirsch would like to have got her hands on the oval then, imagine the dog walking areas, community farm and chinese gardens that would adorn the oval now if she had...

    The facilities were at least newer, and probably more safe back then. Heck, the dunnies probably didn't even make you dry-reach by just entering them.

      The dog crap would have been great fertiliser.
