Barbara Penninga from Griffith Neighbourhood House said the areas looked “run-down”.

“They need simple things like footpaths and street lighting,” Ms Penninga said.

Ms Penninga is closely involved with Carevan and said going to Dave Taylor Park atPioneer was like going camping.

“We need to take our own water because there are no taps, we need to take our own bins because there are no bins, there are no tables or chairs either” Ms Penninga said.

“We recently bought some camping lanterns because there’s no lighting after dark.There are kids that have no shoes on and they come asking for tweezers to remove the burrs from their feetand there’s only one tree for shade in the entire park.They think ‘these people’ will just wreck things and it’s not true.”

Ms Penninga said the lack of amenities would never happen in wealthier areas like Collina.

“It’s important for people to feel valued and a simple way is to make these areas a bit nicer,” she said.
