The Adelaide Football Club is promising to build a new public aquatic centre, for free, if only they can put a two-storey private administration, and training facility right alongside, in Denise Norton Park (Park 2) in the northern Adelaide Park Lands.
After ten months of secret negotiations, four artists impressions were released on 10 December 2019.
Naturally the Crows’ drawings do not focus on the huge private area that the Club wants for its administration and commercial activities. Those private areas (shown only in the distance in their drawings) would take up two-thirds of the proposed building.
SA's first female Olympian, Denise Norton (aged 86) has pledged to stand in front of bulldozers if necessary to stop the Crows building their planned empire in the Park that is named in her honour.
She is now raising money for a publicity campaign to try to encourage both the City Council and the Crows to look at other options - to keep Denise Norton Park for the public rather than for a multi-million dollar football business.
