Well that's great news. I just had a thought, wouldn't it be great to have a website for our city where people (architects, urban planners, landscapers, concerned members of the public) could propose projects like this and get themcrowd funded by the citizens and or firms.

Woodstock park dangerous, say residents
TUESDAY FEB 16, 2016

Trafalgar Park, in the heart of Woodstock, was once a popular recreation spot. But now residents are up in arms about its deterioration into what they describe as a haven for vagrants.
The city confirmed parkgoers might feel uncomfortable with the growing number of vagrants, along with the illicit activities taking place there.
Johan van der Merwe, the city's mayoral committee member for energy, environmental and spatial planning, agreed the park was not being "used optimally as a result of safety concerns".

But he said work was under way to improve it.

"A formal upgrade has been on the cards for some time.

"Some upgrades have been done to the heritage resources, the swimming pool and fencing but the new emphasis is on integrating the entire park, which will encourage a sense of community ownership and increased use."

Although no specific plans were in place, Van der Merwe said the city was working closely with the community to come up ideas for improvements, which would be undertaken in phases.
