More improvements!

It’s pleasing to see continued improvements implemented by the council. New paint and a nice sign (painted by local artist Kathy Parker) to replace the old one the small children’s play area. And the wild flowers are starting to grow.

Improvements in the park!

kgv drainsYou may have noticed some work going on in the park last week.  This was to fix the drainage where the path has completely flooded at times in the last few years.   Many thanks to Jen and Ritchie at the council for sorting this out.  Hopefully it will not flood again next time it rains. This week we are promised some horticultural innovations.  We have discussed a wildflower area between the corner and the tunnel and the council will do this as an annual bed for a splash of colour.  Watch this space!  Also there will be some improvements to the beds by the Logan Street entrance.  Exciting times.  Please let us know what you think!
