Rushcutters Bay locals fenced in over oval concerns
"Rushcutters Bay residents are up in arms over an upgrade to Reg Bartley Oval that they believe will fundamentally change the passive nature of the park.

The City of Sydney council is proposing replacing the timber picket fence around the oval, which was built in 1885, with a metal lookalike for maintenance reasons. Council is also planning a significant lighting upgrade for the oval, which would see an increase in brightness, and the height of existing lights doubled."
