21st St / Hamilton Park Project
“A Park for everyone”
Residents of Parkhurst and Craighall Park have recently set up a joint Steering Committee to manage the up-keep of the Park situated between Hamilton Ave in Craighall Park and 21st Street in Parkhurst. “The Committee has established a robust and active interaction with City Parks who have taken a keen interest in supporting us”, say Joss du Trevou, Chairperson of the Steering Committee. “What has been most gratifying is the collaboration between the residents of the two suburbs and the support of the respective Resident Associations”, says du Trevou.
The Committe is embarking on an Adopt a Park proposal to City Parks which will address projects to improve usage of the park, including better pathways for the elderly living in Deansgate, up-grading of the kids play area, and solutions to the erosion problems along the riverbed.

To get involved, join our next park clean up this Saturday 18 May 2019 between 9am and 11am.
