The Tribune (NZ) - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

Walk­ways and re­cre­ational ar­eas in our city are hugely im­por­tant to the res­i­dents of our city, and when they’re taken away or not able to be used, it’s def­i­nitely no­ticed.

Cases like what’s hap­pened with the Mil­son river­bank pathway bring at­ten­tion to the fact that these ar­eas don’t just look after them­selves and it’s care­ful plan­ning from the rel­e­vant au­thor­i­ties that keeps them use­able for our com­mu­nity.

It’s dis­ap­point­ing to see what’s hap­pened here but no­body can con­trol the weather.

We’re all hop­ing for bet­ter weather in the com­ing months, and hope­fully what­ever they do to beau­tify and re­pair this site go­ing for­ward makes the wait worth it.

Along with some sun­shine, some­thing else our com­mu­nity will be look­ing for­ward to in sum­mer is the open­ing of the long-awaited ju­nior road safety park.

I think it’s a bril­liant ini­tia­tive to teach our chil­dren how best to use the roads, and have fun while they’re do­ing it.
