Palmboom Road Park in Newlands will soon be even more kid-friendly.

A “bed” of wood chips will be laid around the wooden climbing equipment. This will not only make the play area neat, it will also help prevent or reduce scraped knees or toes, should children fall while playing.

Ian Iversen, councillor for ward 59, says the area around the climbing equipment is looking rundown.

“The parks in our ward cater for far more than the parents and kids who live in the area. People come from far and wide and they are always most welcome,” says Iversen.

He says he hopes the surrounding barrier will be in place by the end of January 2020.
