Parks and Gardens

 

In announcing his Parks and Gardens Policy today, John Rewald praised the work of the council in developing parks.

 

Showcasing the regions gardens is the majestic Botanic and Kershaw Gardens. These are both wonderful assets for our city and an attraction for tourists. I was pleased to hear that the council is restoring the Japanese gardens, that links us with our sister city.

 

We need to ensure that our local parks have shade and seating. Many of our parks do not have the shade necessary for our climate, and most parks could use more seating.

 

The council has dedicated parks for activities including picnic and BBQ facilities, as well as four skate parks for skateboarders, scooter riders and BMX riders. These facilities need to be continually developed to ensure they meet safety standards as well as being appropriate for use.

 

While there are several off-leash areas for dogs so that they can play and exercise freely, there is a need for more dedicated dog areas.
