City park in Durbanville gets a facelift<span style="line-height:1.6;">Boland Park, a popular public open space in Vierlanden, Durbanville, has become an attractive park after an extensive upgrade that included installing an outdoor gym and footpaths. </span><div><span style="line-height:1.6;"><br></span></div><div><span style="line-height:1.6;">The upgrade was made possible by ward allocation funding in the amount of R180 000. The funding for the upgrade was initiated by the ward councillor for Ward 105, Councillor Justin Basson, after extensive consultation with the subcouncil, members of the community and officials from the City of Cape Town’s Parks Department.</span></div><div><span style="line-height:1.6;"><br></span></div><div><span style="line-height:1.6;"><strong>Outdoor gym installed</strong></span></div><div><span style="line-height:1.6;"><br></span></div><div><span style="line-height:1.6;">One of the new features, the outdoor gym, boasts a range of exercise equipment. Easily accessible outdoor gym equipment is becoming increasingly popular as people of all ages can exercise in a green space.</span></div><div><span style="line-height:1.6;"><br></span></div><div><span style="line-height:1.6;">‘Not only is the upgrade of the park an investment in the physical and mental wellbeing of residents, it also plays an important role in the beautification, greening and protection of the natural and built environment,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Community Services and Special Projects, Alderman Belinda Walker.</span></div><div><span style="line-height:1.6;"><br></span></div><div><span style="line-height:1.6;">Notice boards with instructions on how to safely use the equipment have been erected, while rubber mats will be installed before the end of June 2016.</span></div><div><span style="line-height:1.6;"><br></span></div><div><span style="line-height:1.6;"></span><span style="line-height:1.6;">In addition to the above, trees will be planted close to the parking area in Protea Street and more benches and refuse bins will be provided. </span></div><div><span style="line-height:1.6;"><br></span></div><div><span style="line-height:1.6;"></span><span style="line-height:1.6;"><strong>Tree-planting Day</strong></span></div><div><span style="line-height:1.6;"><br></span></div><div><span style="line-height:1.6;">A Tree-planting Day will take place on Wednesday 11 May 2016.
