A cash injection and gardening tools have sprouted into a new park in New Woodlands.

The Frans Oeder Park was established after the City of Cape Town’s Parks Department and the local community recently signed a community gardening agreement.

City Parks contributed R15 000, as well as tools, paint and compost.

Lawn and trees were planted to beautify the park and kerbs were installed.

The Moses Kotler Park has recently been fenced with a R50 000 boost from ward allocation funding. Lawn and trees have been planted and the newly installed footpath kerbs round off the park.

“Both parks are run by older members of the community who enjoy gardening as a hobby. The impact these volunteers have had on their neighbourhood is something they should be very proud of,” says Anda Ntsodo, Mayco member for community services.

“Quality public spaces such as these are vital to individual and community life, as they provide local destinations in which people can relax outdoors and enjoy nature. We are fortunate to have such enthusiastic and creative community members to work with.”
