The facility’s completion is a major milestone, following delays as a result of the Covid-19 lockdown in 2020.Built at a cost of R6,5 million by the City’s Recreation and Parks Department, the family park boasts a number of features and amenities that make it the perfect gathering space for the community.
These include: Weatherflex surface court, synthetic grass, electrical works, play equipment, benches and picnic tables, fencing and gates.
‘People’s mobility, quality of life, participation in public life, and sustainable development greatly depend on safe public spaces. We know all too well the destruction wrought by the vandalism of recreation facilities, which is why this park was designed to promote public use of the facility, which will help safeguard it against anti-social behaviours. The park also forms part of a greater sporting complex and is part of the City’s commitment to optimise community facilities.
‘I encourage residents to fully exploit this facility for the greater good of the community. Use it, own it and selfishly guard it against any attempts to undo the progress that has been made here,’ said the , Councillor Zahid Badroodien.
