Campaign to clean up Croppies Acre Memorial
A CAMPAIGN to clean up a northside memorial park is under way.
The Croppies Acre Memorial Park on Wolfe Tone Quay has been closed to the public since September 2012 and is now regularly littered with drug paraphernalia.
Last weekend, members of the South Central Centenary Committee cleaned up the historic site, clearing syringes, beer cans and other rubbish from the park.
The memorial park, which lies between Wolfe Tone Quay and the National Museum at Collins Barracks, is a burial ground for men who fought in the 1798 Rebellion.
A second clean up is planned for 7pm tonight and extra helpers are welcome. "We are developing a strategy to campaign the council to address the issues here," Damien Farrell from the committee said.
