That's what I think we should rename Yagan Square.
Because my first reaction on seeing it was:
YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS!!
Wow. So this is the best we can do. Wide open expanses of paving with no shade.
If you can't plant trees - and sometimes you can't due to lack of soil depth - you MUST at least provide shade artificially. Who in their right mind would want to be anywhere near this place in Perth's summer?
Or autumn, spring or winter for that matter.
Millions of dollars spent here for no result.
The really sad thing is that this is the new norm for public places in Perth.
We just don't get it.
No, really, we don't.
