BUY A PARK FROM THE PARK THIEVES
You wouldn’t buy a car from a car thief, but in desperation, we’re giving you a chance to buy part of a Park from the Park thieves.
The South Australian Government is pursuing the holy dollar – trying to sell off to developers the land that used to be Park Lands around the old Royal Adelaide Hospital.
This is land that Government Ministers previously promised would NOT be sold, and would be returned to Park Lands.
Simply pledge some money – anything you can – to help us put in a bid with Renewal SA for this land. We’re aiming for $7 million. If we are successful in bidding for the land, we will keep the heritage-listed buildings on the site, but return the rest to Park Lands, including a large slab to the Botanic Gardens.
This is an ‘all-or-nothing” fund-raising campaign. If the Adelaide Park Lands Preservation Association, Inc can’t raise $7 million, and we are not the winning bidder for the old RAH site, then you won’t need to part with any cash. Anything you pledge here will not be debited
However if we can raise enough in pledges, then you will go down in history as one of the heroes who saved Park Lands from the Park thieves of the early 21st century.
APPA will ensure that your name is inscribed on one of the heritage buildings that will remain on the old RAH site.
Put your money where your Parks are! How much will you bid to protect our world-unique Adelaide Park Lands from developers?
