A year ago Brisbane City Council upped its budget for grass cutting.
The 2015/16 budget allowed for an increase in cutting from 17 to 19 cuts per year on the city parks.
Never one to miss scoring a political point, "under Labor we only got 14 cuts per year!" proclaimed Lord Mayor Quirk.
Hailing from a part of the world where public parks are the places one generally heads to in order to get bashed (or at the very least efficiently relieved of your wallet and other valuables) the facilities on offer at these spaces in Brisbane are simply out of this world.
And before anyone complains about intergenerational theft or government overspend, the play areas are particularly outstanding and especially well used.
