Do parked cars mean somefing is happening? 
What secret business could be going on behind those seldom opened doors?
Does the guy who owns the twin-cab know that he left his light on?

Paying customers!

The local cycling club pays to use the upper loop of the V8 track for criterion.

The upper loop is also a great place for parents to teach kids to ride, as documented on your blog. I have seen learner motorcyclists as well.

I like to train on the track after work as it is car free and familiarity hopefully will result in a bit of skill on those corners at speed. I have had more than one altercation with revheads who are incensed that a cyclist is using the V8 track, and I should "git orf it". I have sought the permission of the council though, and they assure me they are delighted for cyclists to train there as much as they want.

Now if they would just turn the pits into a farmers market like Rusty's in Cairns I would be a very happy taxpayer indeed.

Reid Park was used as a temporary food-waste transfer station in the
immediate post-Yasi clean up.  But then, it always is after a Cyclone.
No income in this gig or will TCC bill the Commonwealth for rent?

On the way to kids sport - something you certainly won't see in this public "park"

Ried Park is not the Strand - especially on NYE.
6,000 expected and 1,500 turned up.

Preparing for NYE - not a paying gig, but at least some taxpayer use!
