The Henderson-Massey Local Board has indicated their support for the Riverpark Reserve playground upgrade after recent discussions with Tracey Hodder at a workshop on 8 August. We are really delighted with this news and know that our community will also be excited.
The next step is for Tracey to complete the strategic assessment and work with the Investigation and Design team within Community Facilities to progress the project and then get formal local board approval. We have been assured that we will be involved in the consultation and design so are very much looking forward to hearing more as the project proceeds.
The board has also agreed in principle to fund the installation costs for 4 fitness stations. Therefore, we will be making applications to funding organisations to enable us to purchase the fitness stations.
August has been a great month for our group as we also just heard that we’ve been successful in obtaining funding for the Woodside Community Garden through the Community Organisation Grants Scheme (COGS).
