Gladstone's worst car parks, as named by locals

WE'VE got terrible parking in Gladstone and we keep bashing into each other.

That was the view of our Facebookers when we asked them about the worst places to park. The hospital, Nightowl Shopping Centre and Gladstone Centre Square have one thing in common, according to our followers.

They are high on the list of the worst places to park in our fair city.

"Night owl ... Good and bad, that's how I met my husband ... he backed into me," Tracey Beetge Gleeson commented.

The comments were made on a Facebook post on The Observer's page last night.

The narrow, cramped spaces at Gladstone Centre Square, formerly known as the Valley Shopping Centre, topped the list and was followed by Nightowl Shopping Centre in votes for the worst places to park.

"Every car we own (four) has been hit, bumped or scratched," Nikki Warburton commented about Gladstone Centre Square.

Goondoon St also received plenty of mentions while Tracey Craig commented that Gladstone Hospital was the worst place to park.

Other bad spots to park included Chemist Warehouse and Dan Murphys.
