Many people don't even realise that the Park Lands are under threat.  They look around and see the 700 hectares or so that remain.   Yes, what remains is crucially important to protect, but too few people can visualise the Park Lands that were lost last century, last decade, or even last month. 

Once a site is lost, people tend to forget that it was ever part of the Park Lands.  And so it goes, year after year. 

We are continually obliged to focus on the current battles to protect the next potential loss.  But this catalogue of Park Lands losses over the years emphasises that every generation loses a bit more.  Click one or more of the links below to see the record of “Alienations”.  We have catalogued more than 150 so far, and the list is not complete. 

Please help us campaign to stop and where possible reverse that inexorable, creeping trend, the death of a thousand small cuts.
