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.
