"Yarra Park continues to be of major concern to the committee, through the abuse the Park receives as a car park for the MCG, and surrounding sporting precinct.  The City of Melbourne supports the view that it is not appropriate to continue to use such an important inner city park for parking and acknowledges the damage done to the area, especially when the ground is wet.  Sadly, the State Government, AFL and MCG do not share this opinion.  We therefore intend to emphasize removal of cars from Yarra Park as a major issue over the next few years.
