Read the latest City Limits Magazine column by Mayor Felicity-ann Lewis.
This article appears in City Limits magazine - Issue 45 - April 2014.
As we move into 2014 it’s great to look forward to a number of projects we are currently working on in partnership with a range of other organisations.
The Rajah Reserve upgrade undertaken in partnership with the Roger Rasheed Sports Foundation has just been completed. What a great result this is for the local and wider community of Oaklands Park. It will provide fantastic facilities for our young people who are looking to improve their sporting and physical activity skills. It will also deliver many health and wellbeing benefits associated with exercise.
I hope you have found time to visit Oaklands wetland - which was funded by federal and state governments and council – it gets better every day as the reeds and vegetation grow and wildlife makes its home there. To help you enjoy the wetland, a four-page feature on the site is included in this edition of City Limits.
There will be further development to this location, including a recreation plaza, which will see an active leisure space for skating, scooters and BMX riders.
We are also partnering with the Touched by Olivia Foundation (TBOF) to deliver an inclusive play space – the first of its type in SA – at Oaklands Reserve. TBOF believe all children can lead healthier and happier lives, and advocate for an inclusive society, connected by play. It will be wonderful to see play spaces developed where children of all ages and abilities can play together.
More information on TBOF is on the Touched by Olivia website.
