KWADUKUZA’S Sadtu Park is set to undergo a long-awaited major upgrade.

The upgrade, spearheaded by the KwaDukuza Municipality and funded by the KwaZulu-Natal Department of Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs, will cost R11 million and will offer facilities such as an outdoor gym, amphitheatre, play area, braai sites, public viewing screens, a yoga court and picnic areas with outdoor furnishings.

The park, which is situated next to the KwaDukuza Clinic on Theunissen Road, has long been a meeting place for organisations undertaking marches and public demonstrations.

According to the council agenda, phase one of the upgrade has already commenced.

According to KwaDukuza Mayor Ricardo Mthembu, the rehabilitation of the park will promote social cohesion, sustainability and community integration.

In a positive turn for KwaDukuza, the upgrade is expected to create 250 jobs during construction, with 60% of the workers women, 40% men, 20% youth and two percent being the disabled.

Mthembu added that since KwaDukuza is a growing tourist destination on the North Coast, the town was overdue for such an upgrade.
