Grasslees re­vamp

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

A re­de­vel­op­ment of Grasslees Re­serve in Tawa to the tune of $650,000 is one of four pro­posed projects to use fund­ing from the Charles Plim­mer Be­quest.

Welling­ton city coun­cil­lor Helene Ritchie says the re­de­vel­op­ment of Grasslees Re­serve, over two years, would in­clude a new bridge link­ing sec­tions of the park along with new tracks, en­trances, pic­nic area and re­vamped play area funded by the coun­cil. The pro­posal is out­lined in the coun­cil’s draft long term plan, for which sub­mis­sions closed last week.

Other tar­geted projects are a spe­cial gar­den for chil­dren at the Botanic Gar­den, park im­prove­ments in John­sonville and sup­port for a new park on Mi­ra­mar Penin­sula.

The Plim­mer Trust was es­tab­lished in 1980, 50 years af­ter Charles Plim­mer died, be­queath­ing the in­come from his resid­ual es­tate to the coun­cil for civic beau­ti­fi­ca­tion ben­e­fits to Welling­to­ni­ans.
