Park for Richwood?

A motion of urgent need was brought forward at a subcouncil 3 meeting last week to have a piece of vacant land in Richwood developed for recreational purposes.

The motion was submitted by ward 1 councillor, Cheryl Visser at the meeting on Thursday February 20.

The vacant land is located between the N7 highway and Woodlands Drive in Richwood which runs parallel to the highway. 

“The current fence between Richwood and the N7 is practically non-existent,” she told subcouncil.

Visser said the area, which was partly created to manage storm water drainage from higher areas, has over many years presented all sorts of maintenance issues.

It is suggested now that recreation facilities such as mountain bike tracks, a skateboard park and multi-purpose surfaces for different ball sports be built in the area.

“In providing these facilities it will be necessary to fence some of these facilities off to prevent children entering the N7.

“This will also safeguard and protect the facilities provided,” Visser said.

The motion was seconded by Gideon Kriel, PR councillor for ward 1, and supported by fellow ward councillors. It also suggested that council facilities such as a cash office, a localised parks depot and a satellite facility for Fire and Rescue Services be developed.

“It is therefore recommended that the director of parks and recreation be tasked to investigate the establishing of sports facilities such as a mountain bike track, skateboard park, multipurpose surfaces for different ball sports, with a cost estimation done in order to obtain budget provision in the forthcoming financial years,” Visser said.

It is also suggested that the executive directors for finance and safety and security be tasked to investigate the possible establishing of council facilities, Visser added.
